> Acne is actually believed to be caused by DHT, an androgen.

I know. DHT is dihydrotestosterone, and is the most potent androgen. Dutasteride and finasteride inhibit the metabolism of testosterone to DHT.

> I would not recommend these meds. Have you seen the side effects and the percentage of their incidence?

I read it some time, but I don't remember. However, I checked, and according to Wikipedia, "Dutasteride has overall been found to be well-tolerated in studies of both men and women, producing minimal side effects.".

> I looked at it because I have hair loss, which is also believed to be caused by DHT.

I'd like to try it for my greasy skin and occasional acne. I tried an estrogen, because I was having a transsexual episode, and it did wonders for my skin. The grease and acne went away, and the skin became smoother and softer. I had some swelling in my breasts, but the treatment was stopped before I got permanent breast enlargement.
