I have always had pretty good skin, except for the occational pimple or two. For the past 2-3 months my face has been breaking out bad. Everytime I get rid of one pimple, three more pop up! I use Benzoyl Peroxide everynight and I've been taking birth control pills for the past 5 years because I heard it helps your face. I stress out if I even have one tiny pimple, but now that my face has been breaking out bad I don't know what to do! Can anyone give me any ideas of some prescribed medications that really work! I don't really want to take accutane, but I will if it's necessary. Thanks!!

Go to a derm and tell him this. He will probly start you on a course of antibiotics.

There are tens of them , for me minocycline worked.

So far minocycline and tazorac have been working pretty good for me. Itried doxycycline, retin-a, renova and benzaclin and they didn't really have an impact. My acne is mainly on my cheeks and a few pimples now and again on my forehead. Hope it helps a little.
