  1. I have been on the antibiotic cefuroxime for 2 months and it has helped me with my skin tremendously, now all my pills are gone, and im really worried that my acne is going to come back severly like it was before. I see my dermatoligist on monday but im afraid that since my skin is alot better he will dis-continue my prescription. Do you think i should find a new dermatoligsit or is there anything i can tell him that will let me continue using the medicine? Thank you all for any help
  2. About a month and 2 weeks ago my dermatoligist put me on an antibiotic called cefuroxime. This antibiotic helped improve my acne condition greatly. I went from having acne pretty bad like waking up with several pimples to now having it moderately and its starting to become mild. I still get a few but not nearly as bad as it use to be. But now I am worried because my perscription is running out and I want to stick with this antibiotic that has helped me out so much. The perscription will be done

  15. The frequently asked questions topic said that some side effects from accutane include scaring and it also said that acne wil get worse before it gets better along with extremely dry skin, I am considering accutane but now im scared of all the side effects... Will accutane side effects be less powerful if i start with a small doseage? and how many people really experienced these severe symptoms? I couldn't bare my skin getting any worse then it is, or scars... PLEASE HELP
