Customer Question

hi, I am a 29 year old woman with history of PCOS who is currently breastfeeding a 10 month old. i have been having cystic acne since after my baby's birth and was told that the only thing i could take while breastfeeding was duac. I have been using duac for the past 10 months and its not helping. as a result I have alot of scarring and pigmentation as well as active acne. Is there nothing else that i can take? peels? oral contraceptive pill?? the sorry state of y skin is making me really depressed. any advice would be much appreciated. thanks
