  1. Thank you! I had my little boy nearly 3 years ago so I dont think its that. I havent been on any birth control for 6 years. My skin was clear as day while pregant and then obviously when my hormones were returning to normal I got my mild acne back but again controlled it with the topical. Im pretty certain its the coil I think your right if your not ovulating its messing something up with your hormones surely! I got the iud in July and by mid august I was breaking out. There is just no other rea
  2. I have always had hormonal acne mild/moderate since 19 years old after coming off the combined pill. I never went to a dermatologist until 5 years ago i'm 31 now! They prescribed me Isotrex which worked wonders and kept my acne at bay. I had a little boy and skin was perfect whilst pregnant! (The Joys) I cannot go on the combined pill as it gives me Migraine with Aura & the mini pill gives me acne so basically I cant go on any hormone related birth control! Isotrex was discontinued annoyingl
  3. Thanks for replying, Its weird because Isotrex has helped MAJORLY! It did indeed take one month to unplug everything (it was horrible didnt want to leave my house). I actually have stopped the Sprio because Isotrex was working on its own i have to use it every night though! I think my problem was just microdomes that turnt into whiteheads and sometimes things would get inflamed and be under the skin. I havent got perfect skin (have 2 tiny red bumps on the chin not noticable) but i dont get horri
  4. amazing

    clears hormonal whiteheads and blackheads Skin is sooooo smooth Not drying after you get through first month it's great! Breakout like crazy within the first month Im 27 and tried everything....so I never thought a topical would work for me my the birth control pill helped a lot but I wasn't 100% clear like I am now! My acne is hormonal and around chin and jawline. Many whiteheads,blackheads and I wouldn't say cysts but ones that are under the skin bit painful and take a week to go down. I start
  5. Hi Guys, Please help! I am on 100mg of spiro only been on it for 5 weeks and Isotrex i actually think the isotrex has helped so much its literally pulled everything out i still have few whiteheads but not how i use to and skin is so smooth!! and i will keep using it forever (until i want to get pregnant) anyway i have to go on some sort of birth control now im with someone but i cant go on the combined pill because of migraines with aura and i am having a few bladder probs so i dont really w
  6. Thanks pink bunny that's lifted my hopes a bit! Yes they normally say around the chin and jaw is hormonal and I would say women who battle with it for yrs it's definitely hormonal I asked my dermatologist and he said it was hormonal so ask your derm to confirm this if birth control helps then it will be Also I breakout in whiteheads every few days I've always got something on my chin I don't have clear days ever the bigger under the skin ones Id say cystic but there not that big but I get them
  7. I think antibiotics must help hormonal acne for some it just didn't for me did your derm say what type of acne you have?
  8. I'm 26 i started getting mild acne always had a few spots when I turnt 17 such clear skin before so was on birth control pills on and off then went on dianette until April because I suffer with migraines with aura so not allowed on the combined pill dianette worked well and it's got a lot worse towards October this year so I'm positive spiro will help! Can you go on yasmin or dianette? I'm actually hopeful the retinoid gel may be great for my skin it's crappy now but I can tell it's bringing ev
  9. I think we are defos in the same boat although I was on doxycyline for 3 months only 100mg and it done zero for me so I now just think antibiotics don't help hormonal acne but everyone's different. After reading so many posts on here you have to give spiro atleast 6 months and the same for a topical well I'm giving it 3 months if I keep breaking out bad I probably won't stop and I can't live like that lol I don't know how I'm going to get through the next few months but we have to be patient. If
  10. How are you finding spiro? I think I have to stay on the topical he seemed more pushy on the retinoid he said I should definitely be on spiro if I can't take birth control but said that alone won't clear me as I have lots of whiteheads under my skin when you like stretch the skin I think that's why I'm breaking out more the isotrex is bringing everything out! I think depending on what sort of acne you have you may need to stay on it for maintenance which I don't mind but I know its bad I love ha
  11. Hi guys, so I've just started spiro few weeks ago was on 50mg to start with now on 100mg will give this a good few months before I start seeing any improvement. I also was given isotrex which is the topical form of accutane I've been using it for about 10days and oh yes the purging has started and it's horrible I have no irritation well I get red and dry but not enough for meto skip a day yet but I looked in the mirror yesterday and thought lets give few days break lol! My god how long do I have
  12. Hi dee I have stumbled across your posts and I have just started spironolactone I was on 50mg for 2 weeks now on 100mg been on this for 1 week now. I also was prescribed isotrex 0.5 I've been using this every night for 9 days now with no bad side effects so that's why I've continued using every night instead of skipping (wanted to see if I had any bad side effects before skipping days) little background I'm 26 always battled with chin and jawline acne since 17 was in dianette till April for a ye
  13. How's your skin now on spiro? I've just started it and I'm also on isotrex but my skins horrible at present
  14. Thanks for your replies guys! It's Xmas day and my skin is worse then ever I think definitely from the isotrex gel it's so depressing I try not to think about it but it's so hard ! Emma how long did it take for you to get clear on accutane? I really have no objections to go on it I'm just worried that when I come off it will come back bad again! Hormonal acne is such a bitch I'm trying to stay positive as it's only been nearly 2 weeks on spiro and isotrex ive got to give the gel at least 8 wee
  15. Hi Guys, This is my first post! I hope you can help and give me some advice! I've battled with Hormonal acne id say Mild only around my chin and jawline since i was 17 (now 26) the rest of my face is clear. I finally went to see a dermatologist Monday (i paid to see one because the NHS appointment isnt until february i couldnt wait that long) and also because over the years i have been on and off the combined pill and its controlled it. To be very honest it was not that bad until th
