    Proactive is probably the best you can get without a prescription. If your acne is severe, you should probably see a dermatologist. Your primary care physician can also prescribe something. My son takes a low dose of an antibiotic called Minocycline. Since acne is a bunch of infected pores, the antibiotic works well.

    If you’re looking for accurate acne information, best to see a dermatologist. Some people believe doctors are predisposed to take the easy way to deal with acne… prescription drugs. But, with many, this simplistic answer may not be the appropriate course of action. Some feel that such prescription drugs just treat the symposium and not the underlying cause. But, a local dermatologist is still your best starting point.

    For me personally, I discovered a great informational acne treatment site. Not only is there good information/articles but I got their audio e-book and following it’s advice can now say that my acne is a thing of the past! Keep in mind, were all different and there are various types of acne, so what works for some may not be totally effective for all.

    Bottom line, hang in there, you will get past this! Sincere best wishes and good luck.

    Oh, by the way the site that helped me is:

    I am not sure what really works best for acne..........i have tried almost everything on the market and most products just irritate my acne and make the condition worse!!!!!!I am thinking about going to my family doctor i was told that he would prescribe a ointment that really works on any type of acne{i don't have so much of a problem with pimples but have many blackheads.........which are gross}!!!!!!!!I would say if you are really concerned about your acne talk to your doctor about this and good luck!!!!!!
