Maintenance: I'm glad the pimples went away but i'll bet that whether or not your regimen was the cause, you'd like to get back to loving. This would be a great time to talk with your physician about what to maintain you on for the coming months -- topical clindamycin, a low dose of a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline, or some other scientific rx. Best wishes.

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'.
