Need prescriptions : Over the counter benzoyl peroxide v can be tried. Your doctor can prescribe topical retinoids derivatives. Topical or oral antibiotics are often effective. In your case your doctor may decide to prescribe Aldactone (spironolactone), a relatively safe oral medication, which should help if "hormonal problem".
