Medications You Use? - September 14th 2010, 04:28 AM

What kind of treatment do you use for your acne problems?
I use Oxy trible action scrub and pads. It works wonderfully. It really is the only thing that's worked for me.
Pro-Activ was shit and a ripoff, Clearasil was like putting toothpaste on my face, Cetaphil or whatever that stuff is called...it kinda worked but not as well as Oxy.
How about y'all?

I don't have acne problems but I use a soap called Pears Transparent soap. It's AMAZING and the only thing I can use for my oily skin.

For small pimples I get I use the Zit Zapper from Elf cosmetics. It's a spot treatment.

I used to use Tetracycline and a cream (the name of which I can't remember), then when my acne calmed down I used Clearasil skin perfecting wash and went on the pill (Microgynon 30ED). Honestly, that seems to be working a lot better.

I alternate between taking Erythromycin and Oxytetracycline. I was also prescribed benzoyl peroxide, but I don't use that. Sudocrem ftw.

That's the other one I used, benzoyl peroxide.

I use a gel called clindamycin phosphate that works pretty well. Along with the prescription things, I use Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Daily Cleanser and StayClear Deep Cleansing Pads. I don't really have any acne problems, but I love cleaning my face.

There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.

wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

I use Clearasil facial pads, and I use Biore blemish fighting ice cleanser. Works well for me
