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'. ...Read more

Acne products: I recommend dhc oil cleanser (amazing product for all skin types) and queen esther firming serum and awaken younger cream. These latter are excellent moisturizers with hydrolonic acid that doesn't irritate, but work thoroughly. Proper use of salicylic acid (white heads), benzoyl peroxide (blackheads), topical and/or oral antibiotics (pustular), and retinoids (retin-a or tretinoin) for control. ...Read more

Benzoyl peroxide: Forget 'natural'. Acne is a serious, chronic, incurable disease unrelated to hygiene or lifestyle. It's a grave personal and professional liability. If topical benzoyl peroxide in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. If you have scars, you're probably a candidate for isotretinoin. ...Read more

Which product works best for acne?

Which product works best for acne?

None of them: None of the over-the-counter acne treatments does much good. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid-based compound. If I do not get a good result in two weeks, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate to the person. Dermatologists are allowed to use the big guns. Nobody nowadays needs to have bad acne -- life's hard enough without it. Good luck. ...Read more
