You should go to a dermatologist if it bothers you. Antibiotics work, but your acne really needs to be the result of bacteria, not really hormones. Antibiotics in my opinion are a waste because it really does a job on your stomach and they usually don't work all that well, plus you have to schedule your meals around taking the pills. They do work but for me they didn't work 100% and would stop working after a few months.

I think age plays a big part in how bad the acne 'comes back with a vengance'. If I hadn't gone to the dermatologist I think my skin would have gradually gotten worse, but because I went on antibiotics for a little while I bought myself some time (not a lot) and so I just kind of picked up where I left off. I eventually thought the same thing that you did, that antibiotics just make it worse.... well needless to say I stopped with antibiotics and absolutely lost all control of my acne. Retin A worked alright for me, and Accutane by faaaaar worked better than anything I've ever taken. It is drying me out pretty bad but my skin is flawless otherwise.

Anyway, I think you should find out for yourself about derms and antibiotics before you give up on them. Every person is different, maybe you will have better luck.
