A group of mom friends were all talking about acne in their teens/tween and almost every single one of them mentioned that their teen was either on BCP's (females) and/or antibiotics for acne and a few of them mentioned that if their teen had more than 2 or 3 pimples they wouldn't hesitate putting them on antibiotics to clear them up. While I understand acne as a teen sucks, what is this trend of putting every single girl that has any bit of acne on birth control pills or giving them prescriptions for acne medications or antibiotics? Is it just this group of moms? It seems like its becoming more and more just the norm these days.
