Hey BJ'sGuRL, I've had mild/moderate but extremely persistant acne for about 4 years now. I went on 4 different types of antibiotics (doxycycline, monocycline, erythromycin, and amoxicillin) all of which worked for awhile, but I just ended up getting a resistance to them and my face would break out again. I've also tried like every topical imaginable, and I'm finally one the tane :dance:. From my experiences I found Dan's CSR to be one of the most effective if you follow it exactly as he says. If you were thinking about accutane but were worried about the drying out effects (tane tends to cause or worsen eczema) I have eczema too and I found that even while on tane as long as you keep putting hydrocortizone cream on its kept under control. Hope this helped!
