I started having mild/moderate acne breakouts earlier this year. I had never dealt with this problem before in my entire life. First, I tried body washes/body scrubs (including ProActiv) - no improvement. Then, my doctor gave me a topical antibiotic cream (MetroCream 0.75) - some improvement but still not clear.

I was perscribed this for my acne, which has since cleared up. The downside?
