What can help hormonal acne?

Postby Charley2611 on Tue Sep 05, 2017 11:39 am

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)?

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,
