Spiro does work. However, especially if you are female and the spiro does end up working, you do need to go to an endocrinologist.

I am assuming your derm didn't do any blood work on you. The zillion derms that I went to never bothered to test me either. Even though Spiro works, it goes back to the way you were when you stop taking it, and you can't be on that stuff for life.

You need to have tests run to see if its your pituitary or adrenal gland that is not functioning properly. Among several tests, the two I can remember he tested me on were DHEA Sulfate and Testosterone. Both were through the roof.

I was on a drug called Deltasone for about a 1 1/2 years and that was 15 years ago. It is nice to have people compliment you on your skin and not have to dread looking in the mirror each morning wondering just how many new pimples you are going to have!
