Used trigestrel contraceptive pill, changed skin products, got acne all around chin area. Reason?

Hi. I'm 23 years old and have never suffered from any skin problems. Iv used many different types of products & my skin has never reacted. Recently, about 2 months ago went on the trigestrel contraceptive pill and changed my skin products. Suddenly I have acne all around my chin area. Is it the pill or could it be my products? Iv changed it but still no difference and if it is the pill what do u suggest I do to fix it? Please help me:(

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
you are suffering from a very common problem namely acne vulgaris.
Before coming to the exact treatment, i would like you to follow certain precautions:
1. Avoid using any oily creams or lotions over face as much as possible. you can however use oil free moisturisers

2. Wash your face frequently inorder to keep it dry

3. Drink plenty of water

4. Try to avoid eating dry fruits

5.Avoid touching or squeezing of pimples

6. Avoid Hair oil

7. Always use a sunscreen (SPF> 26) when going out in the sun

You might need to apply some antiacne medications over the affected area. I prefer to start with something like like Clindamycin gel in my patients.

Oral contraceptives are known to cause acne, so if you have many lesions, you might as well consult your gynecologist for change in the drug.

But if inspite of the above measures, you continue to develop the lesions, then you might need a course of oral antibiotics.

So i would recommend that you visit a dermatologist in that case for proper examination and treatment .

Hope it helps
