is triple antibiotic effective on acne?

How effective is triple antibiotic on a big pimple? I have a huge pimple and I think it's very infected because it hurts a lot so I decided to apply triple antibiotic instead of duac or differin.

also, does Vicks help to dry up the pimple??


jajaj sorry for those silly questions , i'm just very curious

Re: is triple antibiotic effective on acne?

I'v also got those really big pimples on my face.
Here's what worked the best on me.
Doxycycline.
That is the best anti biotic to shrink the acne.
I use 100 MG per capsule.
2nd, dont use a cleanser.
If you use a cleanser on the large pimple, you might make it worse.
Only use a cleanser on moderate acne.
Just use a good toner. Put the toner on a cotton ball and put the cotton ball on the pimple.
Also get a good toner with lots of vitamins in it.
The Aubrey, Avalon, Earth Science and Jason Toners are good.
They sell these in Whole Foods.

Then use Differin.
Another really good product I had success with was the Neutrogena Multi Vitamin acne treatment.
Neutrogena stopped making it a year ago.
But you'll see it selling online or Ebay.
This was a great product.
It was a lotion with ton of vitamins in it and 1.5% Salicylic acid.
You just put a little of the lotion on the pimple.
This really helped bring down the acne and helped get rid of the redmarks from the acne.
Vicks wont help for acne.
