So anyways a little about me. I suffer from Moderate to Severe acne, with the majority coming around my mouth area, and my cheeks. I am 17 years old, and have had acne since I was 14 or so. When I first got acne it was on my forehead, then last year I got a ton of breakouts around my mouth area, mostly on my chin. Now I still have those (not as bad) but some acne on the cheeks as well. So, I went to my dermatologist October 23,2012 which would have been almost two weeks ago now. She prescribed me a cream, called Epiduo, as well as a oral antibitoic known as doxycyline. She also reccomended I try the Cetaphil oil control facewash and moisturizer. I really like that facewash. Anyways, it has been almost two weeks, and I havent seen any improvement, infact I would say it has gotten worse! I had a huge flare up on my chin a couple days ago with about 6-8 whiteheads shootin through, and two huge honkers on my right cheek that have been there for a week or so now. The point of this whole thing is, when can I expect to see results. Another week? Maybe two? Mostly from the epiduo gel is what I am looking for I think that is the most important thing. And also, when users start on Epiduo do they usually experience breakouts for a while at the start? Thanks alot guys.
Got put on Doxycycline, and Epiduo, had two breakouts one on chin one on cheek. When will it get better?

I'm wondering if your experience is similar. In scouring these forums the most common answer of what to expect is...it depends

Retinoids all take time so try be patient and stay positive that's half of the battle won there.

Hey its been about (1...2....3...4....5) 5 months or so now, and my acne has improved so much!
Im not saying i have clear skin, I have a TON of acne scars from before but my breakouts have gone done from way in the double digits a week, to maybe 1 to 3 noticeable sons of bitches a week. great improvement but i still wish it could be better.
