it's my first time being prescribed an antibiotic for acne. I've heard a lot of bad experiences with tetra on here, however I'm only going to be on it for ten days (250 mg).( I think the side effects get worse when it's taken for a longer period...) I've been having terrible, persistent chin acne since the whole summer until now, the pimples just keep coming up non-stop, bigger than ever (see gallery) . I break out elsewhere, too, and I have blackheads and clogged pores that become hard, swollen and painful...but my chin is the main concern now... I've tried sulfur, zinc oxide, bp...to no avail.
Derm told me it will clear it up in ten days time, is that possible? Seems like too good to be true,,, .__.
I know that I have to take it with a lot of water to prevent irritating the stomach and my skin can become sensitive to the sunlight. If you have any other advice, feel free to give me a heads up
