Cause: Hormonal changes

Treatment: Switch birth control pills. Or if you're past childbearing age, your doctor may suggest a prescription antiandrogen medication, like spironolactone (brand name Aldactone) or finasteride (brand names Propecia and Proscar) off-label, says NYC dermatologist Fredric Brandt, MD.
