I wanted to document my experience with spironolactone, but first I want to give a little background info about myself. I have had perfectly clear skin my entire life, until I turned 19, and started breaking out in cysts on my cheeks. I'm 20 now, so its been about a year of this hell. I don't usually have a lot of cysts and one time, but the cysts I do get don't go away and they are huge! My derm thinks it could be related to an ovarian cyst that was found on my left ovary that is causing a hormonal imbalance.
Things I have tried:
-Retina A (cream and gel)
-Loestrin Birth Control
-Paleo Diet (which I still am on)
None of the above have even shown the slightest bit improvement for my skin. I really don't want to go on accutane so spironolactone is my last resort! I hope it works!
