Question About Topical Meds?..

Hello,
For u people that use any sort of topical acne medication. Are the meds always suppose to make ur acne worse before it gets better? By that i mean an initial breakout?. Reason i ask is because my dr prescribed me a topical med (Zineryt) 10 days ago and its only made my face 10x worst

Yes, they make your skin worse before it starts to clear. This is called purging, or, an initial break out. It's the topical bringing all the impurities that were underneath your skin to the surface to be treated.

Seems that everything will make it worse before better, sucks, doesn't it!?

Just tough it out through the initial breakout and the rest will be smooth sailing! (Hopefully!! )
