I am the same way.  I'm 27.  I have breakouts around my mouth and chin area all the time.  My dermatologist told me to try another kind of b/c, Yasmin, which supposedly is known to be an acne medication too.  I did, but didn't like the side effects, so I switched back to my normal b/c. I will just fork out money for the face cream my dermatologist prescribed, rather than try the new b/c too with the face cream.  My dr. said it would take 3 months to see a difference.  I'm on month 3 and it's better, but not gone.  I guess I'll try this for a few more months.  Hope someone else can be of more help.
