Acne before and after period
I am having trouble getting acnes on my face and my back and my chest mostly during my period or a week after or before my period. I have tried to use proactive but no effects, and I am really having trouble getting rid of these as I am losing my self confidence and my being attractive to my husband I was before.

Please assist and send me your answer in my email ( zuhal_2008***@****)
Thanks

Hi. If you are troubled by hormonal acne, speak to your doctor about taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill. The oestrogen and anti-androgens they contain will block the effect of acne-causing hormones on your skin. Yaz, Yasmin, Diane35 and ortho tri-cyclen will help acne.
Avoid progesterone only pills, the depot shot and hormonal IUDs, these can make acne worse.
I cannot reply to your email address but you can send me a private message on medhelp, should you not wish to discuss this further on the forum.
Best Wishes, Eloise.
