over the counter and prescription only medicines???

Recommended Posts

It really is unique to each person and the kind/serverity of the acne you have. I would say most people can control their acne just fine with over the counter products. However, most people on this board have more persistant acne and need stronger medications such as -retinoids, antibiotics and accutane.

For me, only prescription. Mine was a hormonal problem. But as pinkstarlett said, it's individual. Mild acne could probably be controlled with OTC products. Moderate to severe acne usually needs something with a bit more oomph.
