Hi, Ive been on tetralysal tablets for around 2 years

Patient

Q: Hi, Ive been on tetralysal tablets for around 2 years for my skin because I've had really bad acne since I was around 12. I still take one every day however I have recently started taking the contraceptive pill also(microgynon 30) and after a few month of taking this my skin has got progressively worse. Do you think the contraceptive pill is the issue or is my body becoming almost immune to the tetralysal?

Thanks, louise.

Symptoms:  Acne, redness, spots under the skin, all on my face only
