See Your Doctor Now: Acne is caused by plugging of hair follicle units (excess oil/debris/bacteria) & inflammation; genetically determined. Therapy includes topical/oral meds to control infection/inflammation. Medication-induced irritation/dryness is common. Finding the right balance can be challenging, even w/ mild acne. Your chances at successful treatment are best under the care of a physician. See your doctor now.
