    I've had hormonal cystic acne since my mid twenties. About 9 months ago, I finally saw a dermatologist who prescribed aczone in addition to an antibiotic day cream. Huge difference! My acne has virtually disappeared. I ran out of aczone for a few weeks and had a bad break out, but as soon as I refilled the prescription, my skin cleared right up again!

    This medication seemed to work the first day or two. Skin looked clear and pores were tightening. On the third day though, my skin broke out worse than before using the product.
