Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am Dr.Kakkar. I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
Acne, specially along the jaw line in females along with coarse facial hair growth i.e hirsutism is suggesrive of an underlying hormonal imbalance.
I would suggest a few blood tests like 17- OH progesterone, S. FSH, S. Testosterone, S. DHEAS and Thyroid function tests along with a pelvic ultrasound to look for polycystic ovaries.
You may need to be treated with monthly hormonal pills (ethinyl estradiol+cyperoterone acetate/ drosperinone) depending on the results of investigations. In addition to that you may require spironolactone (Aldactone tablets) as an oral antiandrogen.
Topically you may use Clindoxyl gel on active acne, twice daily.
