I am a 25 year old female and a few months ago I got pretty severe break outs. I have always had mild acne but going on OTC birth control seemed to help a LOT. However, back in January the pharmacy switched me to the generic brand of OTC. Granted it wasn't until a few months later that my acne became pretty bad but I was wondering if the generic pills might have had something to do with my acne. Has anyone had this happen to them? 9 weeks ago I started taking Mincocyline along with Benzaclin topical and my face has definitely cleared up, I am just waiting for the red marks to go away, ugh! I also switched back to the real Ortho Tri-Cyclen. I am desperately hoping the acne doesn't come back ...
but I am still left wondering what the heck caused it to be so bad in the first place? did I get a simple case of adult acne or was it those dang generic pills... any thoughts?
