Manage it: Listen, Tori. Acne is a long-term, chronic disease that you must manage until it eventually remits on its own. Get with your physician now, and start using topical benzoyl peroxide. Your physician will probably add a systemic antibiotic to clearly you as best as possible. But with acne as in most of life, there are no quick fixes. If your date's worth knowing, they'll look past the acne. ...Read more

Acne: Yes. Doxycycline has both an antibacterial and anti inflammatory action against acne. These antibiotics hold acne under control but they do not cure it. However they prevent scarring until your body grows out of acne naturally. They can be used as suppressive therapy for long periods of time. The dose should be regulated by your doctor. ...Read more

Why do people get face acne?

Why do people get face acne?

Complex: It is an interplay between a particular bacterium, the sebaceous glands whose size, shape and function vary with hormonal and other factors, and the thickness of the keratin layer on the outside of the skin which also varies. I begin people with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. This is the 21st century and you have a right to effective treatment. ...Read more

My acne wont get any better ?

Stronger Rx: This is the 21st century and you don't need to have this. If benzoyl peroxide (the only over-the-counter stuff that works) hasn't cleared you up, add a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin plus maybe a topical retinoic acid derivative. Move as needed to a systemic antibiotic, Erythromycin or a tetracycline. This usually works; dermatologists have bigger guns. ...Read more
