Help me decide on these options for my acne.

Recommended Posts

I am currently on prescribed Doxycycline and tretinoin cream for about 3 months and my face still isn't clear, new acne comes out daily and it's extremely annoying. I have just ordered the acne.org regimen kit, plus one bottle of AHA. I really do not want to take antibiotics for longer if they're doing nothing though.

What should I do?

1. Continue with the doxycycline and tretinoin while doing the regimen at the same time.

2. Stop the doxycycline and do the regimen without it.

3. Continue with doxyclcine but not use tretinoin and instead use the regimen.

Thanks - I hope my Acne isn't resistant to the regimen, I suspect it may be resistant to the doxycycline though..

My experience has been that antibiotics suck, BP sucks (yes even with magical regimen), and topical tretinoin works a bit.
