Worsening acne on spironolactone
I would start looking at other measures to treat your acne. Make sure you're on good topicals including Retin A. I like to use lasers for acne: Excel V, Spectra Peel, Spectra Gold toning handpiece. You definitely shouldn't be getting worse on the medication if it is to work.
Acne Solutions--Peels, Lasers, microneedling/prp, skin care
It takes 6-12 weeks for the spironolactone to work best. In the mean time, I suggest a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist about peels, microneedling/prp and/or other topical treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
Spironolactone and Acne
Spironolactone is an excellent treatment for hormonal type acne. Since your acne is getting worse I suggest a formal evaluation with a board certified dermatologist to understand the cause of your acne and best treat you to avoid further acne and scars. Best, Dr. Green
