We're all different. Nobody knows the best acne treatment available. There really isn't a cure for any acne. It's a disease that requires patience for it to go away

Yes, I agree. Although one treatment might work for someone, it might not work for another person.

I think you should see a dermatologist about acne treatments. Your derm will probably give you a topical retinoid to start off, which are basically creams or gels that you put on your face every night. He/She may also make a custom regimen for you to fallow daily which can include facial cleanser recommendations, moisturizers, dietary things that can help etc.

For moderate inflammatory acne, here are a few regimen options:

Benzoyl Peroxide -- Either the Acne.org regimen or a prescription product such as Benzaclin

Topical Retinoids -- Prescription (Retin A, Tazorac, Differin), combined with a short course of oral antibiotics and possibly a topical antibiotic or BP wash

Topical Retinoids -- OTC, combined with salicylic acid

Aczone -- new antibacterial, anti-inflammatory topical, possibly combined with BP or a topical retinoid

Really, a lot depends on whether you are under the care of a derm, whether you have insurance, and how much money you are willing to spend.
