    I am a 20 year female, who when I was 16 used this drug to get rid of acne, I developed a rash and swelling within a couple days of use. Fast forward, to now on 11/24/2015, I developed a bacteria infection on my face causing severe acne, so I was prescribed this again. By 11/26/2015 I had once again severe swelling and a severe rash on my face. Although my acne is completely gone I am still battli ... Show Full Comment

    I have used Benzaclin three different occasions, and each time have seen amazing results. My skin started to improve almost immediately, and after less than a week my scars began to fade. Benzaclin softened my face and evened my skintone, and everyone told me my skin was glowing. I have had acne for as long as I can remember and nothing has ever worked as well as this. I have never reviewed an ... Show Full Comment

    I was in a trial group before the drug came out on the market. I wasn't sure if I was using the placebo until my face started clearing up, then, no break outs. I used it in the morning under makeup and before bedtime. This worked very well for me. I was upset when I finished my trial which lasted for a few months. I'm glad to see that this has worked for other people. When I was youn ... Show Full Comment

    I wash my face with at least three different products everyday and I also used the prescription Epiduo for my acne. Other products such as Neutrogena,Proactive, Burt's Bees, Cetaphil, etc. have had no positive effect on my skin at all. I have been using Benzaclin for about three years and it is the only thing that keeps my acne at a very low minimum, with no pimples at all, hardly any redness, ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 19 yrs old and in a matter of 4 months my skin took a dramatic turn for the worst. I broke out in millions of tiny bumps under the skin and also had red, painful acne all over my cheeks and forehead. I finally went to my derm who gave me a generic version of Benzaclin. I have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin has gotten worse, but this is a GOOD thing, I learned its part of the healing ... Show Full Comment
