derm prescriptions... temporary or permanent fix?

Recommended Posts

When i went to the dermatologist, he gave me:

500mg cephalexin

.1% triamcinolone cream

benzaclin gel

apparently i went in there for 5 minutes and was given this prescription without much talk and discussion. So my question is... are these things usually just to get rid of your active pimples so you have to continue using it for years to come. Or is it a one time thing. use it for a couple months and your acne will be gone forever? i'm hesitant to use even more topical products..

You will have to continue with these prescriptions to keep your skin clear. Once you stop, your acne will come back (unless you are a teen and hopefully grow out of it!)
