I used to be on Dianette for acne but had to come off it after two years as it is not recommended you stay in it for that long. It caused me to gain weight, as well. I was switched to Elvira (generic of Yasmin) a year ago. No weight gain but I have spots (around five every day) on my face. I want them to go away. Any recommendations?

Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern, yes the acne in your case looks to have a hormonal component (attachment removed to protect patient identity). And you are taking medicine to address the hormonal factors. Kindly consult your doctor, to discuss the suggestions and consider the following medications with consent,
1. Capsule Doxycycline 100 mg once a day.
2. Adapalene plus Benzoyl peroxide gel (EPIDUO) apply once at night on acne and wash after one hour. Do not rub it and use in very little quantity.
3. Benzoyl peroxide face wash.
Avoid foods rich in the glycemic index that includes milk, sweets, chocolates, etc. Avoid other topical application on face except for non-comedogenic sunscreen.
