Re: Acne and Meds

Yes, people go to the Dermatologist all the time for acne. Dermatologists specialize in skin conditions and the most common is acne.
There are literally thousands of types of antibiotics and drugs which can be given depending on the type of acne and the severity of your acne. For some people, they go for only one major breakout which wont clear up- this can be injected with medicine and will clear up within 24 hours. For others, they go for routine acne maintenance and will go on a long time antibiotic. There are other drugs which are not antibiotics, but do attack acne. You wont know your choices or find out what is right for you unless you go and get it checked out!
Almost any dermatologist is qualified to help you make a good choice for treatment for yourself.
Hope this helps.
