I was never a person who HAD responded to topicals before. I had cystic acne on my chin line, which is a common symptom of hormonal acne. I had been taking Differin, Cleocin, Triaz, Benzaclin, Retin-A, about 4 different birth control pills... I can't even remember all the other prescriptions I've taken over the years. Tazorac was the last step my dermatologist prescribed before accutane. And luckily it seemed to be exactly what I needed. And Tazorac's fading capabilities on red marks is decent. So I can definately say I've been one of those people that's tried just about everything to cure acne, even attempting a strict diet. My acne lasted a duration of about 6 years, which compared to others here, is probably no time at all. My one saving grace is that I never picked at my acne, so in terms of gruesome scars, I barely have anything.

I never had much in terms of body acne, only a few cysts on my chest and on my back once in a while. Those have basically gone away because I use topicals on those areas too.

BELIEVE me, even though it sounds like I have no problems now, I had YEARS of acne suffering before I found the right mix. I was almost ready to call it quits, and just accept myself, acne and all.
