I've got what seems to be hormonal acne, started in Feb and won't go. In the end the GP has prescribed me some cream (Duac). In the meantime I found Germaline helped, numbed it a bit and calmed it down but having had it for so long I wanted something a bit better.
I say this every time a post about acne comes on. Neighbours son with terrible acne really a face full of pustules, saw a Chinese medical herbalist , the high street type . 3 weeks later almost completely clear skin.
