it is common to get spots after you have a baby due to the change in hormones. As you know the depo-shot can cause acne because it is progesterone. change to an oestrogen and anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as diane35 or Yasmin. You could also try antibiotics or get a topical lotion on prescription. I give this advice assuming you are not breast-feeding. Love loiloi x
