Suggestions for recurrent pus-filled acne on oily face?
I keep getting pus filled throbbing acne on oily face. I've been prescribed oral doxycycline. Have tried numerous topicals - Metrogel, Clindamycin, Tactuo, Differin, Finacea. Still getting flare-ups and at times my face does not look good. Any suggestions?
For severe acne OR for acne unresponsive to traditional anti-acne medications, Isotretinoin can be started.
It the only drug which offers any chance of long term cure and after a full course of isotretinoin significant number of people never have a recurrence of there acne. It should be taken under the supervision of a dermatologist because of certain lab tests which are to be done before and during treatment with isotretinoin.
