Can a hormone imbalance be the? Cause of acne?

Yes: If a woman has much acne, it is likely to be due to extra androgens, especially if her periods are not quite normal; this is very common and your family physician or gynecologist has already considered it. A man's acne is usually just from him having plenty of testosterone, which is a good thing; acne is easy to treat with real medications. ...Read more

Evaluation: Your symptoms seem quite severe. I recommend scheduling a visit to discuss this. Anxiety and depression should be considered as possibilities.

Around the time I started experiencing heavier than my normal bleeding I started getting horrible acne. Could it be a hormone imbalance w/no ovulation?

Possible: You are asking an excellent question whose answer is not simple. Your heavier menstruation or abnormal menses can indicate hormonal irregularities, but not always. These changes (for example pcos) can be linked to acne. Discuss this with your obgyn or dermatologist. They can check with some blood work. ...Read more

What is the difference between cystic acne and common minor acne? D.O. Thinks my acne is maybe from hormone imbalance and gave me keflex.

Same condition: Cystic acne is just more advanced/aggressive. Treatment needs more than topicals, like adding oral antibiotics or even accutane. Keflex is not a standard rx, but it might help some. Acne is (male) hormone related, but it also aggravated by stress, etc. ...Read more

Do you think I have a hormone imbalance I've always had acne but it's become worse and now it's on my back face, neck, been to dermatologist B 4.???

Do you think I have a hormone imbalance I've always had acne but it's become worse and now it's on my back face, neck, been to dermatologist B 4.???

Just manage it: If your monthly cycle is normal, you will not find a treatable underlying cause for your acne. If I understand your history, you are using doxycycline as sole therapy for acne. You need to add a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide. You may also benefit from a medicine like spironolactone, and various forms of the oral contraceptive pill can work as well. ...Read more

Could a hormone imbalance cause keratosis pilaris to get worse or flare up?

Probably: Keratosis pilaris is a very vexing problem that we do not have great answers for. However, many patients note large fluctuations of their kp during pregnancy, and some have found that it is better or worsens after starting and oral contraceptive pill. So probably there is some relationship between hormones and kp, though I am not totally sure how they are connected. ...Read more
