I have tried Clearasil, Duac, Differin, and Epiduo in the past, none of which have demonstrated much efficacy. Hopefully an oral antibiotic will help, plus a stronger topical treatment and the Sumadan to back it up. Please feel free to post anything you want on this (Suggestions, concernes, personal stories, or even the weather in LA!) Anything you want. Also, if anyone know's of a good vitamin to take that may help acne, that would also be appreciated. Thanks!

I recommend Ultra Flora's Critical Care 50 Billion probiotic.

1) drink plenty of water throughout the day
2) take probiotics
3) take the antibotic around the same time of day and dont miss a dose
antibotics depending on which can really drain the water from your system so stay hydrated, they can also make you constipated and to the point it hurts to go to the bathroom
do not take probiotics and the antibotics at the same time of day. take the probiotics maybe at noon or night (depending on your antibotic dosage times, twice a day, once a day ect).
try to stay consistent as possible, as it helps especially when starting out.

What happened to this thread? any updates on your regimen? i hope your skin's doing great right now.
I saw your other thread about differin, my derm prescribed me the 0.1% gel four years ago when i started college. i had mild-moderate acne on the left side of my face back then. she told me to come back after two weeks so i did and i thought it wasn't working. She also prescrbied me with Acne Plus? its a cream in a green tube i don't know if u guys are familiar with it but i only used it once cause it stings really bad, after that one time i never used it again. She gave me a 2% clindamycin solution to cleanse my face after washing it with SEBAMED and before putting on Differin. After a month or two, my skin got a lot better. I kept on using for about 4-5 months until my derm told me i can stop cause she said my skin looked great already (I only used it on my left cheek, chin and forehead cause didn't have acne on my right cheek). I only used differin then as a spot treatment whenever i got a pimple i apply it to dry it out and to reduce the scar. it never irritated my skin and i don't remember it worsening my condition on the first week or so. I still used Sebamed as my daily facial cleanser. It's a cleansing bar without soap or other irritating chemicals in it. it worked really great but may dry out your face a little at first. i was really happy with my condition back then i thought i finally got rid of my acne. 2 and a half years later my acne came back but not as bad as before, it happened during christmas break i don't what happened but i had a break out on my left cheek, but not in my forehead and chin, they were probably because of pollution because i started riding my motorbike to school back then. i went back to my derm and she prescribed me an Acne Lotion that contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide and erythromycin. she said i should apply it in the morning then the differin at night but only the small part of my cheek that has pimples on it. i also switched to a different facial wash. The company that sells Sebamed decided to put the cleansing bar on the market since it was only available through dermatologists at first and was kind of expensive. iMy derm made me switch to a Hyaluronic Foaming Facial wash, it has no paraben, no sulfur, so soap in it so its pretty mild. it didn't break me out . I didn't like putting anything on my face in the morning so i decided to put the BP at night (my derm said its okay). it worked great. i stopped that regimen after a few weeks cause my face got better again and the BP lotion works GREAT as spot treatment. whenever i had a zit coming on my chin or any part of my face i applied the lotion on it few times a day and it wouldn't turn into an actual pimple, but its really pricey. but recently i started getting whiteheads and zits on my front cheeks. those were the parts that i didn't have any problem before. i tried to put differin again on them but it turned them red and itchy, and would go away if i stop applying. i also developed Seb Dermatitis on my left cheek another story i know, but my derm told me stop using differing for the meantime. so right now im stuck with just the facial wash which i think is too mild it doesn't do anything lol
Sorry for the long post and the typos im on my tablet lol
Hoping hear from your regimen and this thread!
Hoping to get updates
