I'm a 31 year old female and for the past 8 months or so, I've been battling really bad acne....way worse than when I was a teenager. Can't figure out what may be causing it. I've tried just about every over the counter product (from cheap to very expensive) and a few months ago, I tried Benzamycin (given to me by my primary care doc). Nothing worked. The Benzamycin made my skin way too dry and it didn't do anything for the acne.

So, today I saw a dermatologist for the first time. She put me on 3 meds. Doxycycline (oral), Duac cream, and Tretinoin Gel (Generic retin-A). So far, I've only taken the oral pill. I've experienced some mild nausea (a common side effect from what I've read). I'll start with the Tretinoin Gel tonight, and then the Duac cream in the mornings. She recommended Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer.

Does anyone out there have any experience with these meds or this particular combo?
