Need Help with Acne On Cycle

acne

during a cycle, a lot of acne is coming out, what drugs can I use, to solve?

Shower, sunlight, and proper management of e2 should control your acne well enough. You should not be taking drugs to counteract the side effects of other recreational drugs, especially with regards to acne meds. They’re no joke.

I think it depends on the type of acne.

If your acne is stemming strictly from steroid use then using drugs like Accutane might be a bit over the top. I would suggest benyzol peroxide body wash and syclic acid spray.

If you have cystic acne that is pre existing and steroid use just exasperates it then yes you need to see a dermatologist and medicine might be the best option
