Acne? Hormonal?

2 posts in this topic

My teenage daughter has been suffering from acne since she turned 15. She is 19 and has spent a small fortune on all kinds of acne products. Last month she went for a visit to the Dermatologist and he put her on birth control and her face has cleared up nicely. If anyone else's child is going through this, maybe this might be the way to go.
