You pretty much have to try one and see if works, and then if it doesn't then you try the next one. Sorry but there's no one antibiotic that works for everyone.

it really doesn't matter. 10 ppl replying to this post saying something mean nothing in regard to a product's effectiveness to you, to me, or to a random stranger.

just be informed and ask (not challenge) your derm for the reasons on why he prefers one over another (and receiving a generic "oh in my 10 years of practice, this seem to work the best"... while basically saying some other derm's preference and years of practice is invalid because that particular medication doesn't work for him?)

you are asking for a small, very small sample that's far from sufficient to even start making a qualify smart decision on.

anyway: doxy, no problem.
