Maintenance: Home remedies and lifestyle-related "pop wisdom" suggestions won't help. Supplements may promote general health but won't specifically target acne. Scientific treatment by a competent physician can keep all acne at bay. To keep flareups at bay, a low dose of an oral agent such as tetracycline 250 daily plus some mild topical rx may be sufficient.
