Why Am I Breaking Out Again?

3 posts in this topic

I am 14 and have moderate acne all over my face. I went too see a dermatologist 3 weeks ago and he prescribed me Epiduo gel and doxycycline. After the first few weeks my skin had noticeably cleared up but in the last few days i broke out again. I have already had my initial breakout so i have no idea what could have caused this. any ideas??

What you know as "initial breakout" is the skin's reaction to dryness: it will boost its oil production. You can avoid it with proper moisturizing.

However, the only known permanent cure for acne is Isotretinoin (accutane, roacuttan etc) and it kicks ass. My biggest regret is that I tried all the other cures such as benzyl peroxide and antibiotics first and wasted a lot of time.
