Hormone-Induced Acne: Acne is most often idiopathic (meaning we really don't know the cause). But in women, it can be a sign of hormonal abnormalities, especially when associated with irregular periods, weight gain/obesity, excess facial or body hair, or thinning of the scalp hair.

Vitex could potentially interact with a number of medications including the birth control pill and should not be taken when pregnant or breast feeding. While it might possibly help acne, you might want to consult a dermatologist. If its an option, birth control pills will often help acne. ...Read more

I was wondering if you can tell me what treatments there are for hormonal acne? The reason I believe I have hormonal acne is because my acne flairs up around the time I ovulate and a few days before I actually get my period. It also flairs up when I have

Medication options: I usually advice my patients to start taking 200 mg Motrin three times a day two days before cycle to help reduce the some of the inflammatory hormones seen with menstrual acne cycling. Birth control and spironolactone can also help. See your MD to figure out which treatment options are best for you.
