I see it most common, but is it treatable?
I'd go to a dermatologist and ask for a prescription only gel/cream to use, if Benzoperoxide 10% or Salicylic acid aren't working (these are in OTC acne meds).
You could also ask to try Yaz, Ortho-Tri-Cyclen Lo, or Estrostep (the three FDA approved pills to treat acne), if you haven't already. IMO, Mirena is kind of extreme (and all IUDs are, as they can cause uterine scarring). Mirena is also only indicated if you've already had one child. A pill is a safer bet. Apologies if you already have kids, and if you've already tried the abovementioned pills.
