Discussions that mention accutane

Acne board


for my niece nothing helped her acne because it was hormonal. the omega made her oilier too. she tried accutane and it cleared the oil and cysts but after a month then pimples returned.we found out that she needed a bc and spiro. it has been a miracle for her due to the fact that she is hormonally vunerable. hope this may help someone that has had no luck with anything.

My son had great success with the Omega 3, perhaps it is not as effective for a female hormonal issue. I have had several people, including an acupuncturist and a holistic doctor tell me that if one hormone is out of balance, there is a good chance the others may be out of balance as well.
I don't know what a bc and a spiro are. I am happy to hear your niece found her answer. Acne is such a tough issue, hitting people when they are just trying to figure out who they are and what they want to do in life. Acne is never in the hopes and dreams!! Thanks for posting. There is always something to learn.
