Although Spironolactone is usually prescribed to treat things like high blood pressure and edema, it has also been very effective for women with hormonal fluctuations that cause acne. Many women have been happy with using this medication to treat acne – studies have shown that up to 66% of women who took Spironolactone had outstanding improvement of eliminating their breakouts and achieving clear skin. In addition, the study found that the percentage raises to 85% when Spironolactone is used in combination with birth control pills.
High androgen levels in the body alter a woman’s mood and cause them to have acne-prone skin. Spironolactone works by helping your body create anti-androgen hormones – which are hormones that lower high androgen levels in the body – therefore Spironolactone acts as a blemish treatment.
Consult your doctor if you have breakouts and want a cure for acne. Spironolactone is a generic drug also sold under the name brand Aldactone.
