Systemic Rx: You'll need a physician's care. Often the combination of topical benzoyl peroxide and a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day is sufficient.

Systemic Rx: This generally requires systemic treatment. If tetracycline 500 2x/day doesn't clear you up, it's time to consider isotretinoin. Your physician may also offer topical treatment. Good luck, and remember this is a non-lifestyle-related, chronic serious disease.
