info on clindamycin phosphate and/or tetracycline

Recommended Posts

I've been begging my parents to take me to the derm, because my acne has been increasing exponentially and I'm starting to go crazy. They told me he'd laugh in my face and send me home because I have so little acne, but my biggest issue is clogged pores and blackheads and I wear a lot of makeup, so I guess they couldn't tell.

So after weeks of begging, I finally went.

He prescribed clindamycin phosphate (topical antibiotic) and tetracycline (a pill?)

Info on either one would be great. Anyone had any luck with either of these? Do either of them get rid of plugged up pores? How fast do they work?

The dermatologist only spent like 30 seconds talking to me because he had a tight schedule, I didn't get a chance to discuss anything with him.

I'm going to move this to the prescription acne sub forum. There is more information there, I recommend taking a look. =)
