I was prescribed benzaclin and stievamycin for my acne. Now I don't really have any left, the only thing i have is the red marks underneath skin left by the acne.

Should I continue using these products or should I just use them as a spot treatment now?

Thanks :D

You didn't come here to hear this, but.....that is something you should probably ask the derm who prescribed it.

I believe (through my own research, friends who have used similar products, and common sense) that the ideal route would be to wean you off these products slowly to allow your skin to adapt to the new conditions without feeling "free" to breakout with the complete lack of drug(s) controlling it in the first place.

Glad to hear they cleared you up!

As for the scars left behind : Time and treatment (microderm, peels, scare treatment cream (only if no active acne present), laser treatment, light treatment, etc)
