acnemyecin (sp?)
 
Wondering if anybody has used this antibiotic and what were results. Concerned if it was drying to the skin.

I used it. I can't remember how dry it made my skin. Probably not very much. But I hated the way it didn't really absorb into your skin. And I woke up every morning with slightly red bumps that itched. My house is clean :) But I swear it was almost like mosquitos were attracted to it while I slept lol. More likely I had a mild allergic reaction.

I used it and had no results with it. It just stayed on top of my skin and never soaked in. It almost made my face greasy. I didn't like it at all.

Thanks for the replies. My derm prescribed it because I have a case of really dry skin and he said that this would treat the acne and help with the dry skin without using a moisturizer.
