Sometimes, acne will appear in my ear. I have down with acne skin for many years. Now, I am taking doxymycin for on month. Second, I have belly hair but it is not too obvious. In the same time, I noticed that I have like very short or tiny hair on my cheeck. It is so tiny but still contrast than the other part of my face skin. Third, my period is not working regularly. Sometimes, it will happen once a month, or once every 2 months, or once every 3 months. Often, I feel pained at area under stomach. I also have hair loss problem.
