I've had hormonal cystic acne for 15 yrs;I'm 26 now.The cysts always come back in the same locations, esp. during my period. Been on Monodox for 3 or 4 months & it's stopped working.The acne/hyperpigmentation outlasted/were exacerbated by laser hair removal, aldactone, Retin-A, Dianette-everything but Accutane (& even then, I'd break out a little during menstruation). I want a revision rhinoin 6 months but have such thick skin I'm tempted to go back on Accutane. Is surgery the only alternative?
Decades of Hormonal Acne and the Cysts Also Come Back in the Same Place; is Surgical Removal of Repeat Cysts an Option?
