My parents are worried so I have to go to the doctor and then back to the derm to see whats wrong and most likely go on a different medication. Does this happen to other women on spironolactone?

Im fine with breaking out when starting a medication because i usually do but with this one my face, chest and shoulders are just covered with small itchy pimples. Before this my skin was extremely oily but now its really itchy, dry and flaky and i dont know if i should keep using it or not.
  5. Severe acne sadly runs in my family, so I already had the genetic part against me. I started getting acne at just 10 years old but it got really bad right before my 11th birthday. It was so bad I asked to go to the dermatologist for my birthday, Ive been going to the same one since. At the time they just gave me a sulfur face wash and some moisturizer, and it continued to get worse. So when I went to stay with family in Mexico for a few months I saw a dermatologist there and they started me on T
