  1. Thanks for your reply ! seems like a similar situation. thanks for the advice, do you know what kind of zinc you take ? there seems to be so many types and some better than others.

  7. I am 22 years old and up until last year have perfect skin and no history of spots in my teenage years or anything (other than a few small ones in t-zone). But In february of last year (2017) I was persuaded to get the contraceptive implant nexaplanon. before this I have been on the bc pill for three years. Two months after getting the implant I started getting acne, specially deep painful cysts. I stuck it out for a while but got it removed in August (after 6 months). It is now January (2018) a
