My Derm wrote me a prescription for a body wash for acne. When I went to get it filled my insurance copay was 40.00. I didnt get it because I didnt really have the $ at the time and I thought 40.00 was a little high for soap. I was thinking about going ahead ahead and getting it but I was wondering if any one else has tried to use doctor prescribed body wash before I waste my $?

never used a Dr prescribed one before. Neutrogena is fine. I am using that with benzo cream and an antibacterial script and results are good.

I use neutrogena body scrub 2x a day and it works fine. One of my friends, who is pron to acne, used some stuff that has two parts to it, a scrub and a cream, and has good results with it, but I think it is a little more expensive.

Bro, i think i know the wash he prescribed but i can't think of the name. If it is the same one I'm thinking of, it dries you out pretty good and will not leave a residue which can cause further acne. Neutrogena is good too but as effective as this particular wash. Sorry I couldn't come up with the name.

u live in texas, so i would suggest going to mexico and picking up some acne medicine! you can get retin- a @ $10/ tube, and im sure they'll have that soap ur talking about, i take a trip to mexico every once in a while, and pick up my meds and gear, it saves ALOT of money

retin-a is a topical cream. i used for awhile and all it seemed to do was peel off the top layers of my skin. then i got on accutane, problem solved

i've used it all---and i got no results with anything except for accutane--that shit will clear you right up--i've never had a problem since---watch out for depression if you decide to go that route though--it gave me a lot of low points
The soap (if its the same kind im talking about) -- no good
Store bought -- helps a little
Retin A -- kinda works with a lot of peeling and itchyness
Accutane -- works wonders (depression might be and issue
I have some stuff to rub on your back, chest, and shoulders that i never used when it was prescribed but im using it now and its amazing--called Brevoxyl-8 -- if you can get it its worth the investment
