Hey guys!

So, I'm 17, and I've been suffering from acne for about 3-4 years. It seems to have its phases, where it'd be better at point x, but worsen at point y. My mom just got thie antibiotic Erythrocin, and I'm rather torn about whether to use it or not. I would say I have moderate acne (pic included) but as I said, it seems to be getting a lil bit cystic sometimes. Other times it clears considerably.

Basically, I dunno if I should start the antibiotic. I fear that if I do start taking it, there might be those side effects, along with the return of the pestilence after I stop taking it... but not just the return, but a worse return. I wondered if any of you used this before, and what your opinions on it are?

I've NEVER taken antibiotics before.. not in any form. Would this make problems worse? Let me know what ya'll think.

you sure you dont mean erythromycin?

I suggest you take it, why suffer? when there is medication out there to help you. There are side affects but ive never experienced it with erythromycin.
