Breastfeeding and Acne

Hi
I am currently breastfeeding my 6 week old baby. My skin broke out badly with acne during pregnancy - i imagine in response to hormones etc. But now I am not pregnant anymore, but am breastfeeding, it is worse than ever. i am desperate to get better skin back! Before I fell pregnant, I was on Minerva pill, which i understand i cannot take while breastfeeding. But is there ANYTHING or any medication at all i can take while breastfeeding to help me get rid of my skin problem?? I am desperate to try anything that is safe!
Thanks
