Manage it: Topical benzoyl peroxide, maybe 5%, 1-2x/day. If you're not clear in two weeks, get with your physician who can add prescription-strength Rx. Ignore all "pop" wisdom about "what you did to cause your acne". It is non-lifestyle-related and you need to manage it until it self-cures, which it will eventually do. It's unpredictable. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hyperandrogenemia: Hyperandrogenemia can manifest as hirsutism that is male pattern hair growth on the face and also can manifest as acne. You need some work up to rule out pcos, cushing's syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia and androgen secreting tumors in the ovaries and adrenal glands.

I am a 45 year old female that is experiencing severe cystic acne on my chin with acne on my forehead. Labs show low testosterone with normal estrogen and progesterone. Will testosterone help or cause more acne.
Generally : Generally speaking, testosterone supplementation may lead to aggravation of existing acne or trigger acne. In fact some testosterone blocking drugs such as spironlactone have been used to calm the acne attacks. After seeking the expertise of a dermatologist experienced in the treatment of acne, it is likely that Accutane may be one of the better treatment options but this has numerous side effects and should be fully discussed prior to implementation. Other medical regimens such as a change in your oral contraceptives, topical antibiotics, or skin care regimens may be advised. I hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi. I'm a 14 year old female. I have combination skin.I breakout monthly. I have super sensitive and acne prone skin. I have dark spots from pimples on my chin and forehead (from squeezing them! woops) and a lot of blackheads on my nose. How can i get rid
Easy Rx: There's a few home remedies such as vinegar and tea-tree oil but i'd urge you to go directly to the mainstream stuff. If over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide doesn't do the trick, a physician's office visit is in order. If it's relatively mild disease and confined to your face, adding topical Clindamycin might be your best option; your physician may suggest others. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Scientific Rx: I am going to assume from what you have shared that neither topical Clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide, nor a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day has given you satisfactory results. It's time for you to consider accutane, which is unpleasant and has some risks but which should clear you. Best wishes. ...Read more

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more
