What can help hormonal acne?

Is there anything that can be done to help hormonal acne (when a healthy diet is already maintained and appropriate products used already but the problem persists)?

Re: What can help hormonal acne?

Dear Charley,

thank you for your question.

Yes there are treatments for hormonal acne. They include Epiduo gel, oral antibiotics, combined oral contraceptive pill, Roacutane/ isotretinoin. There is more information on my website if it is of interest.

I hope this is helpful.

With best wishes,
