I had been on Dianette and using panoxyl topical cream for two years and had perfectly clear skin. Mid-February I was told to come off the Dianette, and since then my skin has become worse and worse and worse, until last week I decided enough was enough and went to the doctor. I've also stopped using the panoxyl as I was sick of it bleaching my clothes. I've had large red spots and I now have lots of blackheads where I didn't have before. I'm now on Marvelon, and am using various products from Neutrogena and Biore containing Salicylic Acid, as I find this doesn't dry my skin as much as the panoxyl.

I have a few questions, and answers/advice from anyone is much appreciated;

1) is it normal to have huge breakouts lasting for months after coming off Dianette?

2) is Marvelon effective? and how long do I have to wait for a result?

3) is salicylic acid effective for controlling acne?

4) are there any foods I should steer clear of?

5) are there any oral or topical natural remedies I could supplement my topical regime with? - I'm currently using oral Evening Primrose Oil but heard that Aloe Vera can also help

thanks x
