I feel your pain! I too was on Yasmin generic for many years (5 years) and went off about 3-4 mo ago.  I got small pimples ALL over my forehead, chest and back, and some on my cheeks.  It has just recently been getting better.  I used to use a plain face wash, I now just use a clean and clear with salicylic acid and use deep cleaning astringent twice a day.  I still have some, but I think a combination of keeping up with these products and also my body just adjusting have made a difference.


That being said, if it is a big deal for you, go see a dermatologist! You can get medications for acne that will be more effective than things purchased OTC.

Get a recommendation from your primary for a good dermatologist.  Mine recommended an excellent one. 

I woudn’t go back on a pill due to acne.  There are TONS of good prescription meds you can take for it.
