Hormonal acne. Taking dianette, yasmin. Stopped taking yasmin. Reoccurring pimple on forehead. How to stop acne?

Hello doctor I am 27 years old and have been on dianette 2 years followed by Yasmin 2 years to treat my hormonal acne . I have been off Yasmin now 3 weeks and have already noticed pimples on my forehead and very oily skin. Is there anything I can do to stop my acne returning? It was the type of acne that was under the skin and very painful. Thank you

Hello, i think if you are unmarried or not planning for pregnancy then isotrtinoin would be the right choice to treat the under the skin acne as its reduces the sebum production or else you could go for oral minocycline capsules, this would solve your problem. take care
