Question What next?

Maybe someone can give me a little advice:

I have mild to moderate acne, usually 3 or 4 blemishes on my face at any given time. Surpisingly my back, upper arms, and chest tend to break out more so than my face.

In the past I've tried Retin A, Tertracycline, and Monocycline, and of course a few ben. peroxide topicals.

I had no success with Retin A, and it tended to make my acne worse.
The antibiotics cleared up my acne for 6 months to a year each, but my body seems to build up an immunity for them, and both no longer do much, if anything, for me.

I was wondering what you all might suggest along the lines of prescription medicine, because at the moment im wondering if i should pursue accutane, and see if how succesful i am with that.

Any comments are input is welcome.

Re: What next?

I'd say....

Give your skin a break and just use regular dove for a few months and try going on a skin friendly diet...meds obviously arent working for you.

Im anti-med (pesonally) They really do more bad than good.

Look at me
you may think you see who I really am
but youll never know me
now I see if I wear a mask I can fool the world
but I cannot fool my heart
who is that girl I see,starting straight back at me?
When will my reflection show who Iam inside..

Re: What next?

use clean and clear continous control acne cleanser with 10% BP in it and the black head clearing scrub and you will be pimple free!
