Gp has prescribed for my DS - a topical antibiotic and something with peroxide in. It has worked FAR better than what I've bought from the phamacist. Go to your GP smile

Dd has a transformed face with Quinoderm which you buy from the chemist counter. Very inexpensive, dh also used it as a teen. Dd had awful forehead spots but Quinoderm cleared them really quickly.

Oh please do take to GP. IS it really bad?

Acne is awful and so treatable. There is no need for your DC to just put up with it. I never had any success with oxy, ketsugo et al. And it was miserable!

My dd has lymcycline antibiotics. Make a huge difference, she's been on them about 2 years. One a day.
