In brief: Get A Treatment Plan

There are several effective acne meds.
Many are topical; antibiotics and Accutane are oral. To categorize one as "top of the line" can be misleading. Therapy requires an individual and multimodal approach. Medication induced irritation/dryness is common. Finding the right balance is challenging, even w/ mild acne. Best chance at success is to see a doctor for treatment plan & close follow-up.
