That my friend is called the initial breakout (IB). I got it too. It's no fun at all, but the steroids should help. My derm prescribed an antibiotic for me which really helped.

Irishguy, there is more than one way to treat acne and no guaranteed way to treat it.

>>> that is true...... i even believe doctors have no clue as to what is really the "root cause" of acne.....


And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.....
