Good Oral Medication For Oily Skin And Pimples

21 October 2012 - 08:46 AM


I am a 29 year old male and all of a sudden a few months ago I noticed that my skin had become extremely oily. When I woke up after a good night's sleep, my face was disgustingly wet. At first, there was just oil no pimples although lately pimples have formed especially on my forehead. I have tried aczone which didn't do much and I tried Clindoxyl which simply made my skin painful and itchy. It didn't solve anything. I have been to various dermatologists and they all seem keen to push Accutane but I have absolutely no interest in getting on it right away because of the side effects, although I would consider it after trying unsuccessfully with other things. In the interim I was wondering if there were any drug say Minocin or Doxycycline that someone can recommend that may help to deal with the oil and the acne.

Thank You,
