  1. 1. Of the following choices, which medication should i use for moderate acne?

    • accutane
    • benzoyl peroxide (regimen)
    • minocin
    • clindamycin
    • other (please specify)

I am 16 years of age and have tried a couple of products during the two years i have had this moderate acne which is on my face, chest, back and arms.

In March of last year i started using clindoxyl (1% clindamycin 5% benzoyl peroxide) and minocin (oral drug). My acne went away last june and stayed away untill i stopped using minocin in November. It then came back on my body and this past june on my face. I started using the minocin again 3 weeks ago but have yet to see an improvement. i have heard that one can develop a tolerance for drugs and after a while they become ineffective which i fear has happened with the minocin.

I start school in less than 2 weeks and i am upset since the last time my classmates saw me i was clear on my face. Now they will see a complete facial breakout. Please help me figure what i should do.
