Nervous to try benzaclin..

Recommended Posts

i was on antibiotics about 8 -10 years ago for a few years and it hurt my stomach and didn't permanently get rid of my acne. so i went to a new derm today for my chin breakouts and she prescribed me this but i am nervous that it will have the same effect as internal antibiotics. i take acidophilus but i just don't know

any opinions would be appreciated.

I agree that Benzaclin is amazing stuff. I've been off and on it for a couple years now and whenever I find myself getting into a really bad breakout cycle I start using this again and I see immediate results!!!

My kids both use this and have for a long time with good results. Any antibiotic has the potential to mess with your intestinal flora (as I understand it). It says so on the packaging. You should ask your doctor and/or continue taking probiotics.
