Re: Acne Problem
May 1, 2015
Hi, I have also suffered from severe acne for the past two years. I have tried every over the counter cream and treatment, every brand, and nothing has worked. I've tried toothpaste,bakingsoda, you name it I've tried it. It was so bad that I was ashamed of my appearance and I would always wear my hair down just to hide my face. This isn't a home remedy but it worked wonders. I went to my doctor and he prescribed me 14 days of doxycycline, and benzamycin cream for my face. Doxycycline is an antibiotic which treats a wide range of infections (acne may be a symptom of another problem or infection) and benzamycin kills bacteria on your face dries up the acne. I didn't expect much seeing as nothing else worked, but within a week it had improved 95% and my face had been clear since. Its been three months and my face is still clear. Also I use neutrogena soap for acne prone skin, and neutrogona 3 in 1 face scrub every few days to exfoliate and remove dry skin. I'm pretty sure most insurances will cover the medications fully. I have medicaid and paid nothing. Hope this helps and good luck to you!
