If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin gel can be used instead of salicylic acid. A doctor can add an antibiotic gel such as cleocin (clindamycin phosphate). Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral accutane.
