What are the best products to help take care of acne?

Rx's are best: The over-the-counter and "holistic" stuff works poorly. I start folks on topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If this doesn't work well enough, i add an antibiotic appropriate to the individual. The big guns (accutane, lasers) can only be used by dermatologists. You have a right to be treated effectively. Good luck. ...Read more

Creams, not gels: The treatment would depend on the severity of the acne. Gels are more drying than creams, and more likely to cause irritation. The otc benzoyl peroxide preps tend to have alcohol, and can irritate. A prescription, water based benzoyl peroxide would be less drying.
