On Beauty Q&A: Mystifying Dress Codes & The Great Bra Hunt

@sparrow303 acne + eczema = the worst ever. I finally went to the derm and she gave me a hormonal scrip for the acne which has helped a lot. I get less eczema on my face too because i'm using fewer acne topicals. I find that hydrocortisone is best for eczema (though it really causes breakouts and my derm isn't crazy about me putting a steroid on my face) and the aveeno for eczema with colloidal oatmeal is second best.

On Actually Ask a Nurse

@bruschetta I actually asked my gyno this same question, it turns out the hormones used in hormonal IUDs and implanon are different than the ones used in birth control pills, so hormonal IUDs and implanon often make acne worse. which sucks because i need the acne control and am horrible at taking a pill every day.
