I had these two horrbile cysts on my chin that never totally went away after a year or so....they seemed to go away, but they'd explode every few months. I was just put on spiro, and that day, they almost completely dried up and I think they are finally gone forever. The derm said spiro particularly helps with acne around the chin area. Hopefully this would work for you (and I have seen no side effects and it's cheap!).
Kitten: I didn't think that Sprio permenantly helped hormonal acne. I thought that it worked as long as you took it and that's it. Do you think you grew out of it while you were on the Spiro? My acne sounds like it's beginning to do what yours did before the Spiro.

Fox: How old are you, if you don't mind me asking. It sounds like you have exactly what I have. I rarely get pimples anywhere, and when I do they're not bad or bothersome. I do get cystic acne on my chin. One to a few at a time. They last a while and then leave a colored mark. So annoying. I think it's getting better as I would get them all over my face when I was in my teens. I'm 21 now and hopefully, my hormones are changing? Who knows.

I'd try washing w/ a gentle cleanser, followed by a 2% salicylic acid pad and a layer of 5% benzoyl peroxide. Then moisturize w/ an oil-free, non-comedogenic, etc moisturizer. I feel the less in something, the better it works. Do this every morning and every night. Don't skip for any reason. I also realized that I was taking live Acidophilus pills and when I stopped those, my acne got worse.
Good luck!

I was just put on spiro, so I don't know. I've heard that in some cases it does permanently change your acne, but even if I had to be on it for life, I'd probably do it because so far it's the only thing I have seen great results from. Also, I've always had weak thin hair that wouldn't grow and peeling nails, and now these show improvement as well! I would think that if it would work for you, you would realize fairly soon because I did, but then again, everyone is different.
