Hormonal acne
I have read in an American skin and beauty handbook that Tricyclen is a contraceptive pill, used to treat hormonal acne. Lately I have been suffering from that, and want to know, if that certain pill is available in South Africa, and if so, it is fully trustable as a contraceptive, my first and formost concern above having acne. I don't want to become pregnant, but if it can treat acne, so much better. Thank you very much.
