Ok I just stumbled on this website looking for info on Alesse. I have had Acne on my shoulders, whole back, face, arms, chest, breasts, and neck for years. I am 18 now and am getting very desparate. I have tried all of the usual dermatologist so called cures and not a one does anything. I eat very healthily and have been since I was about 5 years old. I am currently using natural progesterone cream and just finished my first cycle of it today. My skin looks worse but I know that most things take about 3 months for your body to get used to so I am going to stick with it. However if the cream doesn't help I don't know what to do. I read all of the posts for Acne and was wondering what the anti androgen medications mentioned were all about. I do NOT want to go on birth control pills but I will if there's nothing else. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
