Suppression: If you are not allergic, certain antibiotics( doycycline, zithromax) may help- but how do you know that these brakouts of acne are"hormonal"- certainly can be in a female patient- are you taking any hormonal therapy ( testosterone)?

See gynecologist: Assuming you are female, your gynecologist may be able to suggest a birth control pill that would be beneficial.
