Hi my name is Amanda, I have recently been prescribed to Gildess FE 1/20 birth control. My two main reasons for getting on birth control was to help reduce the heaviness of my menstrual cycle and improve my adult acne. Reading reviews by users has been difficult to come by. Those I have found mentioned having missed periods while on Gildess FE. Is this a common side effect, and will this improve my problem with adult acne?
Understanding your concern. As per your query you have adultacne which occurs due to various hormonal imbalances, stress, poor hygiene as it is formed due to clogged facial pores that get infected with bacteria. I would suggest you to apply cream rich in Azelaic acid or Kojic acid. Avoid touching or pricking acne. You should get your hormone levels monitored. You can go for home remedy as well. apply mashed potatoes on these pigments. Apply on face twice daily. You should take diet rich in multivitamins. It will lighten pigmentation on skin. use medicated sunscreen such as Tancare rich in SPF 30. It Will resolve. apply cotton dipped in tea tree oil to lighten the pigments.You can visit dermatologist once and can go for chemical peeling or micro abrasion if your symptoms not resolving. Take supplements rich in vitamin C.
Hope your concern has been resolved.
Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes, Dr. Harry Maheshwari
