I have polysistic ovaries and stopped taking the pill in

Customer Question

Hi I have polysistic ovaries and stopped taking the pill in June after 10years. Since then, I’ve been having acne on my face chest and a little in the back. My gynecologist originally told me to take Tolexine which I have on and off but it hasn’t been always effective. I’m using Avene cleanance gel and avene cleanance comedomed to wash/treat my face but wondering if I should change and what else can I do?!
Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?
Customer: No other skin concerns. Mmh i also feel perhaps I’m getting hairy-er since I stopped. Basically my hormones are adjusting... but appart from that nothing
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hi I'm 27 I ton't have any other medical problems and the only medication I take is Tolexine
Attached are two pictures.
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 7 months ago.

It is hard to tell for sure from that one picture but you might have impetigo.

So. What to do?

Since the Tolexine and avene are not working well I suggest that you get an exam by a dermatologist.

Once she examines you I am confident that an effective treatment can be started.

Does this make sense to you?
