Hi, thanks for posting your query

Pimples occur due to hormonal changes which stimulate the oil glands to produce more sebum, leading to blockage of pores and hence pimples. there is no permanent remedy for it but it can be controlled by medications.

You seem to have PCOD , because of which there are irregular cycles. So your cycle disturbances are not due to the medicines you took for acne

Infact A person with PCOD has more tendency to develope acne

chemical peeling is nowadays increasingly used as adjunctive to medicines to treat acne.

A patch test can be done on your skin to know whether it is suitable for your skin, so you can go ahead with it .
for PCOD you may contact a gynaecologist

Hope this solves your query
