I am a 27 yr old female and i started getting acne in my 20s. I went to see a dermatogolist who concluded it was hormornal. At this point i had tried every acne cream from everywhere. So my doc prescribed Adoxa, Retin-A and Benzalin. My acne cleared up within a month. Adoxa was the miracle worker because after i stopped taking it (I take it a month at a time), I stay clear for a few months and the ... Show Full Comment
