    I have combination skin and had a bit of a problem with acne around my T-zone and around the corners of my mouth. I tried this gel and it completely dried out the area my face. It looked like I burned my skin. However I was told this was normal so I tried it one more time. And it BURNED my skin now it even looks like I have a busted lip

    I never had a skin problem.. and then I turned 30... Ugh! Combined with a tremendous amount of stress, I was diagnosed with adult acne (on forehead).

    I suffer from adult acne on my face, neck, chest, shoulders and upper arms. This medication has been wonderful! I've been using it every night for 2 weeks and my acne is almost completely gone!! I am also taking minocycline 50 mg (morning and night) and washing with Cetaphil. I am very impressed with this drug.
