Off-label: Acne is an off-label use of both drugs, and whether it is safe to use them depends entirely on your particular situation. Nothing "cures" acne, but we have many options for controlling it.

Benzoyl peroxide: Most of the OTC skin products for acne are safe in pregnancy. Simple soap and water works great, as long as you understand that the high Progesterone levels in the first trimester are the cause for acne -- by the end of the third month, most major flare-ups are over.

This is not the same: You are referring to photodynamic therapy treatment for acne. We do not use this type of light therapy in dentistry. There are special lasers to treat oral conditions, but not the same.

Does z-pack always work for my sinus infections?

Dr. John McClay

Often not always: A z-pack, or 3 to 5 day course or zithromax (azithromycin) has been a commonly used antibiotic for over 15 years. It penetrates into the tissue well and stays there longer than other antibiotcs, so you can take it for only 5 days. But resistance by bacteria is dramatic because of this "hanging around". However it often makes you feel better because it has great anti-inflammatory properties too.
