Home / Hormonal Therapy in Acne
In females with resistant acne ie acne not responding to conventional therapy, we must always evaluate for any underlying hormonal imbalance. There are certain conditions like polycystic ovarian disease, SAHA syndrome, HAIRAN syndrome etc, where oral retinoids is not enough. There is a requirement of hormonal therapy. Hormonal therapy when combined with conventional treatment of acne shows good results. The main aim of hormonal therapy is to counteract the effects of androgen on the sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
This is indicated in females who have acne which is resistant to conventional therapy. Adult onset acne, severe acne and recurrence soon after stoppage of therapy in female patients are indications for hormonal therapy.
