Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
She should be screened for hypothyroidism and diabetes mellitus. Topical clindamycin is safe and effective treatment in mild to moderate acnes.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
