Acne for the old

Recommended Posts

I have suffered acne for well over 20 years.I originally went to the doctors and I was given Oxytetracycline.After years of taking this,with little affect I was refered to the hospital who put me on a strong course of drugs that effectively shrunk the pores.This came with side affects,but did do the trick.This lasted about 5 years and the acne returned-Big Time!!!.I had also been suffereing from male patterned baldness and decided to try a new drug called dutasteride.I have never looked back,no more acne and has stopped my Hair loss.I cant believe no doctor has suggested this!!!!!Try it yourself it cost me £95 per six months.

That's very interesting.

Apparently this medication is primarily used for benign prostate enlargement, with the side effect of being able to stop baldness.

It lowers DHT which is probably why it has a positive effect on acne.
