A FACE CREAM to balance hormones?
I'm a male--16 years old--and I have rather moderate acne on my face. I have about 5-10 active pimples on my face at each times and my face is pretty much covered with red marks. My chest and arms have probably severe acne. My mom has approved me to go on Accutane after trying about 8-10 trips to the derm, and I've tried Differin, Retin-A, etc. with a ton of different kinds of antibiotics. Nothing has worked, so today was my derm appointment when my mom was going to approve and sign me off for Accutane.
But today, she was curious and asked one of her friends what his son went through with Accutane. Supposedly the guy had really bad acne when he was a kid, so naturally his son had acne. He went through Accutane and it cleared him up. But his daughter had it almost worse than his son. But she didn't go through Accutane. He some kind of hormone specialist send out a pack of stuff that would cure a lot of hormonal or stress related stuff, such as mood swings, acne, etc. And he said it worked better than Accutane. And it's supposed to balance hormones. But it goes on the face!
I just don't see how that would work, but when I look at his daughter, she's perfectly clear. Does anyone know how this works or if it's just a fluke?
