I heard that sometimes if your acne gets really bad then going on the pill can help... Is that true?

Hey, cool it: the world won't end with a pimple, and this is a busy place, okay?

BCPs can help with SOME types of acne. It depends on why you have acne and what type it is, so it's something to ask your general doctor or dermatologist about.
