Acne Treatment: Q&AAsk a Question
Which Birth Control Pill Best Prevents Acne?
I am 30 years old and have struggled with acne since fifth grade. My current pill, Lo/Ovral, helps the acne on my face, but I'm breaking out along the jawline and neck; it's especially bad the week before my period.
The pimples can be painful and sometimes bleed if they break open while washing or toning my face.
