Adjunct only: There are better topical antibiotics for which resistance is less of a problem. Never use an antibiotic as sole treatment for acne. If for some reason you cannot get a standard treatment from your physician, using this along with topical benzoyl peroxide for a time might be worth a try. Acne is a serious chronic non-lifestyle related disease that can be managed scientifically. Best wishes.
