: I would just like to make a criticism of the way acne is dealt with medically. The dermatologist looks at your face and applies impressive words to a condition you already know you have. Then you are prescribed medication that you are probably already familiar with. To see results, the derm. either increases the dosage or changes the combination of meds. There is so much more to this whole thing! For one, acne definitely has different causes. This is probably why some respond well to B5 and others don't at all.
I think there needs to be a newer generation of dermatologists (as well as other doctors) practicing, perhaps opting for a more holistic treatment. My dermatologist blamed my acne (at least in part) on me- for putting my hands on my face. "Spreading bacteria", I was.
