Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip
The problem could be your particular type of BCP and I would switch you to YAZ which is actually recommended for treating acne in women.
For now, I would treat your acne with a combination of oral doxycycline twice a day for a month and topical clindamycin get twice a day for a month.
Please let me know if you need any more information
Going back to the previous birth control pill would do just as well.
I would have you finish the present one out for the month and then make the transition
You can try over the counter tretinoin cream also know as RetinA--that's usually pretty effective
The other no so pricey option would be prescription hydroquinone cream
All my pleasure but please be sure to rate my service to you
