Meds starting to fail

Recommended Posts

At the end of december I saw a derm for the first time and received some medications for my acne.

He started me on 50 mg (2 times daily) of Doxycycline, Differin Cream, and Clindamycin Lotion.

It helped me out A LOT for a while, i was virtually acne free all over my face and just awaiting the red marks to fade. My back, also, for the first time was looking MUCH better.

I saw my derm early february and he switched the clindamycin lotion with duac gel. It was looking pretty good, but the past week or so I've noticed I started breaking out again. I've gotten about 3 or 4 new pimples on my face, and about 4 or 5 on my back. During the course of the treatment I broke out VERY little, and it was just a pimple here and there. I'm very concerned.

If it doesn't get any better I'm going to call my derm, but can anyone here give me any advice, or what meds I'll go to next?

Thanks everyone!
