Is cipro (ciprofloxacin) good for acne?

Not long-term: Never use an antibiotic as sole treatment for acne. Your acne is likely to clear if you are taking an antibiotic for some other reason, but Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is poor maintenance. Topical Clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide is probably safer and cheaper. ...Read more

The importance of adequate face washing: when dead skin clogs up a pore, bacteria grows in the oily skin.

Are there any great natural solutions for acne?

Scientific Rx: Acne is a serious, chronic disease that needs to be managed scientifically until it remits on its own. The stuff that works (benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid derivatives, salicylic acid, prescription antibiotics) all are gifts from mother nature. If you're responsible for a young person's health, you have a duty to provide effective treatment including physician consultation. ...Read more

How to reduce acne?

How to reduce acne?

Start with...: Topical benzoyl peroxide. If this does not clear it, your physician can add topical Clindamycin or another antibiotic; if it's on your trunk, you'll probably need a systemic antibiotic as well, and if it's severe, dermatologists have stuff that's not pleasant and a bit risky but is certain to clear you up. This is the 21st century and you have a right to be acne-free. ...Read more

I suffer from acne

Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel or cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics like tetracycline can be used. If quite severe, a dermatologist may use Accutane. ...Read more

No: Putting your semen on the lesions isn't going to help. This is the 21st century and you have a right to be treated effectively. I start with topical Clindamycin plus either benzoyl peroxide or a retinoic acid derivative. If required, an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline will clear most acne.

Scientific Rx: This is the 21st century. The only over-the-counter remedy that's much good is benzoyl peroxide and it's generally inadequate. I add topical clindamycin, plus a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads. If results are not good in two weeks, I add a systemic antibiotic as appropriate, and dermatologists have big guns for tough cases. You deserve to be acne-free if you wish. Good luck. ...Read more
