I also live in Japan-Osaka and I am so mad at the system here because they consider acne a cosmetic thing and there is not much help with dermatologists unless you go to a plastic surgeon and that's to treat scars after acne. I've seen several dermatologist and they only prescribe 50mg tetracycline for two weeks and a small water based ointment (58 US Dollars W/ health insurance). You have to keep going every 2 weeks because is illegal to prescribe for a month.

I will soon be 30 years old so I know how you feel.

If you find another thing that works, please let me know.
