    I had tried topical antibiotics and astringents initially but once going on oral antibiotics didn't have topicals as well. My son has topical adapalene along with his oral antibiotics but I'm fairly confident that the oral antibiotics are all that is necessary to clear up the skin and keep it under control for as long as you remain on them.

    Hey Hopeful74, I used antibiotics as a teenager and unfortunately every time the antibiotics ran out my acne came back. When I went to college I eventually saw a derm and went on accutane. I had a tough time with blood noses while taking that but it cleared up my acne and I could finally put that chapter of life behind me. I now have a teenage son who is going through the acne struggle. He is the same with antibiotics...they work great while he is taking them but once he stops the acne comes back. We are just starting to consider that he may have to use accutane also to get his skin under control. Good luck with your journey! Kind regards, Jazzguy
  4. Hello members, It seems some have taken exception to others posting in this forum recently. You may find that some people post a number of similar posts and you may think sometimes these are irrelevant to your interpretation of the thread you are commenting in but please remember that this is a PUBLIC forum and remind yourself of the community rules. Posters come and go and move on to other topics but if you make aggressive, mean spirited posts in poor taste to discourage them that just incites similar responses and you may find yourself the recipient of warning points and censorship. Remember that you can start a new thread on your particular interest. There may be a feature coming to the site that will allow you to block seeing other members posts if you find there is someone whose thoughts you're not interested in. Introduction of this feature is outside of the scope of moderators so patience please. Anyway, carry on and try your best to be civilised and mature in your posting. Do report behaviour you consider inappropriate but accept that moderators, although sympathetic to your concerns, may not always agree with your suggested action based on the community rules.
