Re: Yaz and acne
Oct 16, 2007
[QUOTE=JoTX;3260707]My 14 year old DD has been on Yasmin for 1 1/2 months and her face looks horrible. I keep telling her to stay with it and give it more time. She is really upset and keeps threatening to quit taking it. She says she is giving it this last month and that's it. I know 2 or 3 mths for her is a lifetime. I really hope that it starts working for her by the months end. I am printing out some of your replys about 3 or more mths. It breaks my heart to see her going thru this. Of course this year is difficult anyway w/it being her 1st year in high school...she feels like everyone is staring at her face. She plays volleyball and sweats and I'm afraid this is contributing to her acne problem. I don't know how else to help her. Please keep us posted w/updates and progress. Thanks!!

Is she seeing a derm? A short course of antibiotics might help her get over the hump till the bc pills kick in. Bactrim and sal. acid peels worked wonders for my daughter at that age. The bc pills should work in time. Also, consider adding some spironolactone in. She might need more hormonal control than just the yaz. Acne treatment requires great patience. My daughter had more than me fortunately. I know how hard it is to watch your kid go through this.
