Problem with pimples
My son, now 16, has enormous problems with pimples and has tried almost everything. His whole face is covered and nothing seems to help. He has been to doctors, tried various pills and oitments but all in vain. I am very concerned that it will have a bad effect if not stopped urgently. Your urgent advise would be very much appreciated. He is currently using Cyclidox Tablets and Skinoren Acne Cream

Thanks a lot

Desperate, it sounds like the next step would be for him to start taking Roaccutane®. The best would be to see a dermatologist about it, but your GP can prescribe it too. Good luck.
