What's the best anti acne cream or gel for an 21 yo guy?

Rx: I'm aggressive and start with topical clindamycin, adding a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads, and offering over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide if it's not. Even in our loony health care system this should be cheap. For tougher cases, don't hesitate if you're offered a systemic antibiotic, and dermatologists have even bigger guns. Glad you're proactive, good luck. ...Read more

I have tried every almost anabiotic for acne, & I was recently trying "the blue light" it did nothing. What topical cream it's best for adult acne..?

Serious Rx: You're 24 years old and have acne scarring. At your age, this is a very serious personal and professional liability. I'm also disturbed that you seem to be using only an antibiotic without also using topical benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid and/or salicylic acid. Antibiotics alone don't work well.
