Hi, I am 37 years old and having problem with my skin... Developing cystic acne... So I am wondering 2 things:1. I suffer low hirsutism (could be caused by polycystic ovaries?). Thyroxine replacement could mask this problem? As I dont have irregular periods, not infertility. 2. I have check some hormones and the only a bit high (120) was the SHGB.. I dont know what can I do, my diet is quite healthy, I cut dairy and eat a lot of fruits and veggies... I started suffering cystic acne after having my first daughter, but it healed for a while, just recently I am having these awful cystic pimples.. Thanks for your help
