My 15 year old son started breaking out pretty bad. My dermatologist started him on Benzamycin Pak, (which he applies all over his face), and Tazorac, (which he uses only for spot treatment because his skin is pretty sensitive to it), and within two weeks he went from having approximately 30 pimples to about 4. I was completely impressed. His skin did seem to become a little redder and more broken out at first but then it got better. I hope you have as much luck with the product.
