I am a physician in my late 40's still struggling with both black and white heads on my nose and cheeks. As instructed by my dermatologist, I apply each nite to cleansed, dried skin after I have applied moisturizer.

We tried two different antibiotic treatments, without success. I’m now using topical…Aczone in the morning and Traczorac at night. Right now I can’t say I’m seeing any improvement. Today starts week four and ... Show Full Comment
