Adult hormonal cystic acne

Sometimes I forget that I started this lovely blog space to discuss the highs and lows of acne. At age 36, I am now experiencing adult hormonal cystic acne. So I finally made the appointment and went to my dermatologist ( after hoping it would clear on its own). My acne is primarily concentrated along the jaw line and it is what I call ” the variety acne package”  – black heads, white heads, and painful cystic acne.

The meds

Aczone Gel- Morning

Epiduo Forte – Night

doxycycline hyclate 100 –  once a day at night

I am also taking Microgestin ( which I believe is the cause of the hormonal acne, more to come on this later)

See Day 1 pictures below. Wish me luck!
