I was prescribed erythromycin pads, and I didn't really see results. But I should admit that I don't use it 2x a day as prescribed cuz it feels oily. I had minor rash on my face from it, so I discontinued using it. I've gone back to good ol' bp cream. Good luck to you.

i still think its useless but it might work for you definatly give it a go but if it doesnt work maybe you should consider something like minocycline thats working really well for me eusa_angel.gif

Hi.

I took tetracycline, but gave me headaches so I stopped taking that and I took erythromocin off and on for about 2 months and it cleared up my cysts real fast.

I didn't have any side-effects with erythromocin. I think this is a good antibiotic.

I also use (now) Retin-A and NeoStrata 8% glycolic acid (100ml) with 2% clindamycin (I used this while taking erythromocin) as well.

I have very mild acne and I wanted them all cleared up, and I'm almost there.. except for a few red marks.

Thats good to hear, im now on day 3 of taking my pills and i havent had any side effects so far. I thought i might have stomach cramps but i dont which is great- just another quick question- do antibiotics clear up acne thats already on ur face as in dry it out or does it just help prevent new ones??
