It sounds like you need the help of a board-certified dermatologist to manage your acne.  If it mostly flares before your menstrual period, the birth control pill or spironolactone may help.

Each individual's skin and acne is unique. I recommend that you see a board-certified dermatologist who can personalize an acne treatment plan just for you.
