    What shouild I try next to stop acne.

    What would you guys try next to get rid of acne. I tried dawn and it worked for a week or so, i tried retin-a topical and it didn't work at all. I am now on tetracycaline it has been about three weeks and there is no sign that it is improving. If I dont get it taken care of pretty quick I will have scars.

    benzaclin and clindamicin (sp) work well for me. I also wash my face with neutragena soap.

    witchhazel works good, that stuff proactive is relly good also, just gotta wash ur face 3 times a day,each time do it with an oil free acne soap, then scrub with witchazel, this should do wonders, if u got the dough, go for proactive

    Thanks guys, I forgot to mention that I have used proactive. I'll try witch hazel and see if I can get my hands on benzaclin and clindamicin (sp).

    It takes tetracycline a while to kick in and you shouldn't use dairy products while taking it. If you dont get results your dermotologist can be of far greater help than anyone on this board. You saw hoim for the tetracycline, right/ Hasn't he scheduled a follow up visit with you?

    Wow, that is pretty scarry. Has it started working now? If not I would strongly reccomend that you see a dermotologist in person.

    I tried a ton of stuff, nothing topical, ive done tetracycaline, docicycaline, and another -cycaline that started with a C, and had no improvments whatsoever. Then I got a perscription for accutane, and almost 8 months later, totally cleared. Though ive had acne for like 6 months pre accutane, and now I do not have scars so.. Maybe you should give it a thought.
