  1. Ok so I have had moderate acne since i was 13, it came and went from being really bad to not bad at all. I tried proactiv, differin, veltin, solodyn, some other medication (cant remember the name), prednisone, green tea leaves, diet changed for a month...didnt do anything....i also tried so many other creams and many dermotologists visits but ok ive been taking about 32,000 IU of vitamin A a day, and Zinc/Calcium/Magnesium Supplements about 4 a day. As well as Aczone Cream and Cetaphil Moisteri
