I have an acne problem, not serious but quite visible and needless to say, it bothers me a lot. My dad (a pathologist) made me visit a dermatologist around year and half ago, she prescribed antibiotics (Dalacin) and Panoxyl, so I tried that. The acne got a lot better, but by taking antibiotics every day, my immune system was very weak and I was prone to colds, influenza etc. I've recovered sufficiently now but I stopped taking Dalacin orally, instead I use the topical solution on my face. It helps a bit, but not that much really: I'm afraid there's no real cure for acne.
