    I never had a skin problem.. and then I turned 30... Ugh! Combined with a tremendous amount of stress, I was diagnosed with adult acne (on forehead).

    I suffer from adult acne on my face, neck, chest, shoulders and upper arms. This medication has been wonderful! I've been using it every night for 2 weeks and my acne is almost completely gone!! I am also taking minocycline 50 mg (morning and night) and washing with Cetaphil. I am very impressed with this drug.

    I use about twice a week, 3x if necessary. It is nearly magical at making blemishes go away and it leaves my skin clear and glowing.

I tried all treatments including all sorts of Retin-A's...nothing worked. I finally went on a low dosage of Accutane for 6 months and started ortho lo birth control--from then on--miracle! My skin was crystal clear from 14-22. However, I stopped taki ... Show Full Comment
