What next?
Nov 30, 2003
Maybe someone can give me a little advice:

I have mild to moderate acne, usually 3 or 4 blemishes on my face at any given time. Surpisingly my back, upper arms, and chest tend to break out more so than my face.

In the past I've tried Retin A, Tertracycline, and Monocycline, and of course a few ben. peroxide topicals.

I had no success with Retin A, and it tended to make my acne worse.
The antibiotics cleared up my acne for 6 months to a year each, but my body seems to build up an immunity for them, and both no longer do much, if anything, for me.

I was wondering what you all might suggest along the lines of prescription medicine, because at the moment im wondering if i should pursue accutane, and see if how succesful i am with that.

Any comments are input is welcome.
