I think that the OTC and OTC-Lo have helped clear up some people's skin.

My daughter started breaking out around age 15 and the derm put her on minocyline and differin. It cleared her up just GREAT! She was on it the antibiotic for about 1 year. Then she weaned off that and stayed with the differin. She stayed pretty clear. She started the OTC in Sept. of last year and it has broken her skin out pretty consistantly. She tried Pro-Active and it worked for a short time. She didn't think going back on antibiotics would be an option as she was told by another derm it interferes with birth control.
But this new derm says that isn't so.

Now she's on the new combo, doxyclyclin and duac. She is going to stick with the OTC for another 2 months...till she goes back to school, then she might try to switch to Yasmin. I was really hoping the derm might try her on spiro...it seems like a safe alternative and a good approach to me. All acne is hormonal and spiro addresses that directly. But, he looked at me like I was crazy and said absolutely not.
