2 posts in this topic

Hello to all ,

I went to my family doctor with very high hopes for my mild stubborn acne. I have been prescribed Minocin(antibiotic) once a day and i

am applying Differin gel 0.1 % at bed time and Clindoxyl gel in morning and its my 8 week now ,still no big improvement but now along with red pimples i do have large number of blackheads on my cheeks (before this treatment i don't have blackheads ) is this because of this treatment :s It seems like nothing is working for me i wash my face daily with Dove soap for sensitive skin.

What should i do ? should i wait and continue this because i feel very sad and depressed when i look at mirror :( or should i ask my doctor to put me on some other medicine . Need reviews and help .........

Retinoids really kick in around the 6 month mark. I'd personally wait a little longer, but if it's really making your depressed you should go back.
