yeah it works great(at least for me)...I hadso severe acne that if it failed the derm told me that I would have to take accutane. Now, I have great clear skin, due o the mincycline and clindamycin the derm prescribed me...I especially REALLY like the clindamycin

My younger brother has also used this stuff. It cleared him up almost copmpletely, until he developed a complete resistance to this antibiotic.

And he had then a huge , gigantic flare-up of cystic acne. Then he had to start Accutane (a month ago).

I think that anyway a simple Antibiotic treatment is only a replacement treatment - it kills bacteria that in fact aren't the real cause of most acne cases. The real reason of acne is bad (hereditary) keratinization process of epidermis - in simple words - the plugging of the pores with dead skin cells and some sebum (there needn't to be much of it, just to make a solid clot with the corneocytes [dead skin])

So the only real treatment (yet not cure - there is no, save aging) is exfoliation - topical retinoids (retin-a for e.) or oral ones (Roaccutane).

As for me, when I used to use Dalacin T (solution), my mild acne spiralled down to a heavy, cystic acne - it irritated and worsened my skin so much that I could not recognieze myself!!!!!!! So it was NO good for me - DEFINITELY! I think I would even overgrow acne if only I stuck to BP or just a mild cleanser. Now, like my broth. I'm on Accutane.
