Yes, I'm Asian too. I occasionally use Differin, which requires a prescription. I also spot treat with benzoyl peroxide, the over the counter type. It helped with my cystic acne.

Originally my dermatologist recommened the Differin at night, and antibiotic gel called Clindamycin T Gel during the day. Eventually I didn't need the daytime gel.

I would recommend seeing a dermatologist if you haven't already. If it is severe and is causing scarring then you may want to consider Accutane. I would do some research on it first. There are people on this forum who are on Accutane.

Medications work differently on different people.

yea i used the clindamycin and differin combo, and it worked for me, i hardly break out but yet im still oily, but not much breakouts.

I also use hibiclens to cleanse my skin, I think its one of the most important factors of me not breaking out.

Get accutane biggrin.gif My skin feels so unbelievably smooth, my scars are unusually disappearing at a rapid rate, and I'm oil free!

I know how you feel about those damn whiteheads around your mouth. They're the most annoying ones of all!!

Mi Mi I have oily skin too, but I'm clear up because I took Diane 35 for 6 months. It worked on the 2nd week for me. After I stopped taking it I went and got facials and that helped alot too. If you are interested in topicals, I remember using Dan's Benzoyl Peroxide and it worked well.
