Transgender adolescents and acne: A cases series.

DOI: pde.13448  PMID: 29575091  

We describe the difficulties of treating acne in a series of female-to-male transgender adolescents, including concerns about potential hepatotoxicity with concomitant use of testosterone with isotretinoin or tetracyclines. Acne is a foreseeable adverse effect of testosterone treatment in transgender adolescents, so monitoring for acne is advised. The treatment of acne in transgender adolescents is important given that severe acne and transgenderism are associated with higher rates of depression and suicide.
