my severe acne only really began 6-8 months ago. I acted on it pretty quickly and began a treatment of Bactrim antibiotic. I've been on it for 2-3 months and there's been a definite improvement in my skin (now have lots of scars but far fewer massive lumps!). Anyhow my derm didn't seem to notice the improvement at first but when I pointed it out, he agreed and decided we should start weaning me off the antibiotic. He's cut my dosage in half and wants me to stop completely in a month's time. I'm SOOOO scared to do this (I'll still be on spiro - started a month and a half ago), coz I really couldn't handle my acne returning to the extent it was before treatment. Aren't periods of anti-biotic treatment usually meant to be much longer than a couple of months? What should I do?
