Re: 100% Clear?
Feb 11, 2002
My story is kind of long........

I went to a dermatologist in December of 99 and got a prescription for tetracycline, retin-a micro and klaron. I did this for about a month and my skin got terrible. Absolutely horrible. I stopped and started my own routine of using oxy face wash, and oxy face wipes with the tetracycline. Gradually my skin got better. It took a long time but it kept getting better.

Then, my family went on a trip to California in August of 2000. While there I got burned and flakey. When this went away, I decided to try a dermatologist routine again. So he put my on Differin (milder than retin-a) at night and klaron lotion in the morning. He had me use cetaphil face wash and take the tetracycline twice a day. By the time school came in September, my skin was perfectly clear.

This was the way it was until I was switched off of tetracycline in June of 2001. Gradually the acne began to come back. I'm now back on the tetracycline and it's starting to go away again. I'm now trying to find products that will keep it away when I have to go off the tetracycline again.
