PCOD with acne is very different from acne in teenagers. There is a strong hormonal issue. Kindly consult a dermatologist at the earliest. Your hormonal tests need to be done and may be ultrasound abdomen to confirm PCOD diagnosis. Face packs don't help. You may need hormonal tablets to reduce acne and regularise periods. There will be results in few weeks time. You may need ongoing treatment. Kindly consult early to prevent black marks and scarring. Good luck !
