Common problem: Breakouts are common with hormonal changes such as those that occur when you start or stop birth control pills. Most acne breakouts can be managed with the use of a regular and consistent skin cleansing regimen using a gentle soap designed for use on the face and the addition of a 2.5% or 5.0% benzoyl peroxide solution following cleansing.

I have done my ET on 27th April. On a 2Ww. But experiencing fast hair growth in Chin and upper lips, acne on face. Is it any symptoms or indication?

Complex & Individual: Variations are huge. While hair follicles/hair growth do respond to both local blood flow & hormones in different ways in different parts of the body, scientific understanding of how these factors quantitatively influence hair follicle response remain way beyond current medical understanding with any clarity. So yes, an indication, but of what is most anyone's guess. Good luck. ...Read more

Picked my scabs on my chin and on my upper lip. What do I do to get the pink skin to go away and prevent scarring?

Normal early on: The pink skin this early on in the healing process is absolutely normal. It is the body's way of healing the area where the scabs were. Give it some time, even a few months, for the redness to improve. I would recommend keeping the area moist with an ointment like aquaphor to prevent scarring in the area. Also, if the redness persists, non-invasive pulsed dye laser can remove redness. ...Read more
