Acne Cream: We do not promote commercial products especially since there are no clinical superiority studies on creams that share similar products. Also keep in mind that most creams are comedogenic and in fact may worsen comedone formation.

See a dermatologist: You should see a dermatologist for proper evaluation and treatment. Acne can be treated with topical cleansers containing benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, retinoid creams, chemical peels, laser and light therapy, and accutane.

Scientific Rx: If two weeks on over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you, get with your physician. You may be a rx for a topical retinoic acid derivative, the oral contraceptive pill (if you're female), topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline, or a dermatology referral for possible isotretinoin. All acne is manageable today; it's not a hygiene or lifestyle problem. We can help.
