In brief: Rx meds are best

A woman or older man may want to seek an underlying medical cause for troublesome acne.
Otherwise, i start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative in it. If this isn't adequate, a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline or erythromycin, depending on what you can take, helps. Dermatologists have Accutane and lasers. All acne can be managed -- good luck.
