I had 2 children who had problems with acne. What works for one person, doesn't always work for another. One child tried Acne Free, an over the counter kit sold at Walmart and it dried out her skin something awful. That child changed to Proactive, a similar kit, sold on the internet and in magazine ads and it worked fine. It costs about twice as much as Acne Free. My other child used Acne Free with no problems and continues to use it.

ProActive (TV commercial) works, but it's VERY expensive to stay on it. They do offer a promotional price for first time buyers if you want to try it.
Like the previous response says, a dermatologist can prescribe medications but most are conservative about writing prescriptions and I'm not sure of the side effects.

If you can't find anything over the counter, your doctor can prescribe Retin-A. My son uses it but you can't stay out in the sun for long periods of time, i.e. Don't lay out after putting it on. It's also good for scars and I use around my eyes for lines! It's strong so be careful if you do use it.

My children used neosporin in addition, of course, to keeping the face absolutely clean - that is, no make-up!

Over the counter treatments often don't work well.
Go to your doctor and get a recommendation for a skin doctor near you. They can prescribe good treatments for you that WORK.
Benzaclin is a good treatment. Clindamycin also works.
Hope that helped

I have had acne since I was about 11, and I am now 20, I recently got this new laser treatment called ELOS acne head followed by chemical peels to get rid of the scarring and they have all worked greatly. I am completely sick of acne and have had it almost my whole life, so I was willing to try anything. The laser helps to rid the skin of bacteria underneath and my acne is pretty much under control except for a few here and there. The laser is about $75 a treatment and I received 4. I get peels done every 4 months and they're from 175-300 dollars. But if you are really serious about getting rid of acne I think this is a good way to go because I have spent thousands of dollars on all other products and dermatologist visits and this has really worked for me. If you don't have bad scarring you prob. Wouldn't even need but 2 chemical peels, but I get them every 4 months just for maintenance of my skin. There is no down time for the peels, your skin is red then peels for about 7 days, and I went to school right after the laser because there are no effects from the laser. It really has made me a much more confident person because acne sure can take confidence away. Also drinking plenty of water and washing the face EVERY night I noticed has helped.

There is one over the counter acne solution that I found is great! (I'm 33 & have struggled with acne my whole life!) You wouldn't believe it if you saw it on the shelf, its actually called "BYE BYE BLEMISH" - the drying lotion! Its surfer which is proven to get rid of the big blemishes quick! I've put it on my trouble areas every night before bed! I'm usually rid of the eye sore blemishes in one to two days! & it the amount of bad ones down!

Unfortunately many people see your blemishes before they see the real you and even if you know they appear not to, you always end up feeling self conscious. And when you feel self conscious you end up worrying more about what the other person is thinking, rather than what you are thinking or how you are feeling.

It's like a blemished view of the world and it does affect how you act. So really there comes a point where severe acne is no longer conducive to a happy or healthy life and you need to do something about it. But where do you start? Doing your homework is always the best place to begin. You really want to find a product that has a few key components and a few key effects. First of all, finding a product that is made from natural ingredients is really important. Adding chemicals to the mix when your skin is already challenged would not be the first route to take.

Secondly, you should look for a product that is fully guaranteed. If a company is selling a product and doesn't stand behind it, then that is a good reason to be weary. There is less reason to believe the claims and testimonials if the company is not willing to offer you your hard earned money back if it doesn't work for you. Not every product made works the same for each person, so a company has to realize that and be willing to put their money where their claims are.

Thirdly, look for an organization that clearly spells out what the ingredients are and what the effects of these ingredients will have on your skin condition. You really want to know what you are putting on your skin or what you're putting in your body. Chemical laden products can have adverse side effects that can actually end up irritating your system even more, causing more stress, which in turn can create more acne.

Finally for an acne product to really be effective, it should work internally and externally. Acne is not just caused by external forces such as dirt; it also can be affected by what you take into your body. Some things that you eat can have a detrimental affect on your skin, so taking a product that can help balance out the adverse internal effects will ultimately be more effective.

Clear Pores is a three-part skin cleansing system that does all the above and more. It works effectively internally and externally to help reduce blemishes, reduce inflammation and swelling, and remove debris and impurities, leaving your skin clean, blemish free and clear. So there is no need to look any further. Clear Pores really is the one stop shop for blemish-free skin and a clearer future.

A dermatologist friend once told me to:
1. Wash with a salicylic acid wash
2. Apply a glycolic acid cream(Alpha Hydroxy) to the entire face and other problem areas
3. Finally use 10% benzoyl peroxide directly on breakouts.
Do daily.

Available at Walgreens; a few bucks; no prescription . Works as well as TV remedies for a lot less money.

I had problems with acne on the upper back until I was 30 and found a solution. Here are some suggestions:

Get yourself a product including Salicylic acid. This costs like 10€ in a pharmacy and will last you some time. Personally I apply this while showering on my upper back but you could also use it similiar to a face wash, depending in your problem zone.

Then get you a prescribtion for a product including Zinc acetate as a topical. (at least you need a prescribtion for this in Europe). You could add zinc as a supplement (pills).

If this is not working (and I promise it will). You would have to go for harder stuff like retinol creme.
