mild acne
hi doc! ive have a problem with mild acne on my face, ive tried various cleansers that havnt worked for me and spent quite alot of money to try and improve my skin  however, now ive approached a new product just a week ago called ' Proactive' , ive been using it for a week so far. I know that it takes up to a month to see results, but i was wondering if there was any other methods i can do to fight my acne. thank you so much xX

Hi Krissy
Ask your doctor to prescribe an antibiotic topical lotion to use with your other products. If this doesn't help one can use low dose antibiotics twice a day for a few months or go onto Diane which is like a contraceptive/hormonal treatment. If this doesn't help one can see a dermatologist and get some Roaccutane for 3-4 months.
