  1. Derm just called in Septra for me and going back on the cleocin pads (don't think the metrogel worked). Advice???
  2. Although, I am sure that the regimen works for many, I just cannot see it working for me. BP has NEVER worked for me at all. That is why I intially saught professional treatment. Any other advice! TIA
  3. Thanks MrKeys for the words of wisdom. Prescriptions seem to work but just wear off in time. I'll see how this other oral med works. Is there any other topical antibitoic out there that I can try? [-o<
  4. Should have updated that, It has been about a month since I saw the derm.
  5. Well.....I just called the derm today and asked him to call in a prescription for me. I asked him to call in the clindamycin pads and the new oral he was talking about. See below for a background. My History: I am now 23 and had Acne all through my teen years. When I was about 16 I went and saw the doctor and he prescribed me oral tetracycline and topical erythromycin. That worked great and I saw significant improvement in my Acne. Then, when I was about 19, the Erythromycin seeme
  6. BTW, until Sarurday, I was pretty clear (no new ones) for about 2 weeks.
  7. Everything started to seem like it was clearing then over the weekend I got a couple big pimples underneath my bottom lip. I think I need to call the derm today to get something else. Kinda sucks cause I will be getting married ina few months and i'd like to be clear by then. Just when it seemed like it started to work. Support please!!!!!! ](*,) ](*,)

  9. So....should I go back on the clindamycin or give this a few more days???? What are my other alternaitives besides Erythromycon and Clyndamycin? I can always call the derm and ask for him to phone it in. He als told me to wait till the end of the month and see if the Mino was still working, since I stopped taking it for a while. If not to let him know and he would phone in Septra.
  10. Has anyone else used MetroGel for their acne? From what the derm told me, it is just basically another topical anitibiotic.
  11. I still seem to be breaking out after switching to MetroGel for my topical antibiotic, although I have been only using it for about 11 days. I seem to be getting big pimples, atleast 1 every 4 days or so. BTW - Everything I read says that MetroGel is for Rosacea, but I do not have Rosacea, just your "good ol every day Acne Vulgaris". Advice please. I need help and fast! My History: I am now 23 and had Acne all through my teen years. When I was about 16 I went and saw the doctor and h
