  1. Hi! I just started Spiro today. My dermo said that Spiro basically came into popularity after Accutane grew popular and there was (and still is!) a certain subset of women whose acne comes back even after accutane and other advanced treatments. These women tend to have acne (esp. cysts) concentrated on the chin and jaw. Often have oil skin and hair, irregular menstrual periods, and hair growth that is higher in areas than a majority of women. Also, having these symptoms doesn't mean you have a
  2. Hi. I would try a lower estrongen birth control pill with a lower androgen count than Loestrin24 FE before taking such a jump to Dianette, which is higher on the estrogen-dosage on the 'BCP Spectrum'. I also was on Loestrin24 FE for similar reasons (acne, but not terrible--only a few cysts), and it made my chin really terrible.

Also, sorry for posting this in the wrong message board and thanks for letting me know.
  5. I am a 23-year old female. I need some advice! I had a few zits in high school but didn't develop acne until college. I've tried differin, tazarac, benzoyl peroxide gels, clynomicin, tea tree oil washes, and was on mynocycline for two years. The mynocycline cleared up my backne and my face was pretty stable until I stopped responding to it during my second year. I quit take the oral antibiotics a year ago and started taking birth control--two different types (Lo-Estrin 24 FE and Cryselle) whi
