    I had a bad case of rosecea. I was put on this and tetracycline and within 2 weeks my face was perfectly clear. It had not been that way in over a year.

    I used this in conjunction with tazorac. my skin dried and i hated it. THEN...I spoke with dermatologist about the correct way to use. First of all make sure your skin is clean and DRY. WAIT before applying the medication as long as you can, 5 mins minimum. Brush your teeth or eat your breakfast, then put on. Make sure you use a moisturizer over it. PUt all over the face not just on acne.

    I used this topical in conjunction with oral doxyccyline and another topical. I believe the oral meds carried the brunt of the load at treating my acne. But the two topicals I used did help mitigate my cystic acne somewhat. I experienced some peeling at first, but that subsided within a week or so with the use of a mild moisturizer.

    I have moderate acne, and this medication wasn't very effective at all. The worst breakout I have ever had happened during the 4 months I used this. It just wasn't very strong, and also severly irritated my face! Worse than any other Rx cream I have used
