Updated:3 months, 2 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Jun 05 (ANI): Recently a study found that, Spironolactone is currently approved to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and conditions that cause people to retain fluid. It blocks the effects of male hormones like androgen which means that it's not an option to treat acne in men. However, those same anti-hormonal effects can help prevent acne outbreaks in women. Oral antibiotics are the most common systemic treatment for acne, and when combined with the large patient population, the result is that dermatologists prescribe the highest level of antibiotics per provider among all medical specialities.
