Nexplanon and acne?

I have been on Nexplanon for a little over a year. I  am noticing cyst like acne in recent months. My dermatologist put me on an antibiotic and a cream, she said it’s hormonal acne. As a result, getting the implant it removed may help. However, she seemed unsure and I brought that aspect up. I really like the ease and effectiveness of this birth control and feel uncomfortable with the idea of getting an IUD. However I have backne which I’ve never had even as a teen. Although the stress at work doesn’t help. Has anybody else dealt with this while using Nexplanon? Is there a way this can be controlled better?
