Q: How do I get rid of hormonal acne

Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.

If the cause of acne is surely hormonal, then the specific treatment for the same is started including Ethinyl estradiol, cyproterone acetate, metformin depending on the reports.
Besides this, usual anti acne medications are given. I prefer to advise topical Benzoyl peroxide / retinoic acid and clindamycin to my patients.
In moderate to severe grade, oral medications like doxycycline / minocycline / azithromycin are started.
Discuss my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy
