DO NOT USE OXY acne treatment!! It made my acne WORSE, this shit doesn't work at ALL, it doesn't get rid of acne, I still get pimples, I even get MORE pimples and blackheads and it makes my face all greasy feeling, this stuff is an absolute waste of money and waste of time and complete fucking shit and makes your acne worse and makes your skin worse, don't waste your money!

Just be aware most acne medications make it worse before it gets better. A LOT of people have had experience with this. My advice would be to keep going at least for a month or two.
The appearing worsening of acne is actually the medication speeding up the formation and clearing of the acne, so when not on medication it would still all come up but just slower so it would appear better, but the medication can't prevent whats already there, so all the forming pimples etc have to appear before they can be cleared and further ones prevented It will clear it I am sure!

For me, it wasn't that OXY didn't work, it was just that it made my skin exceptionally dry to the point where it actually hurt. But remember that different things do work for different people!
