    I just got off of the Nuvaring because of this! I'm so upset and hope it clears up because it is painful and on my face. I use CeraVe as a moisturizer but I will have to use something that will be more helpful to locking the moisture in. I was on Nuvaring for two months and saw the side effects immediately.
