Cool over the counter medications?

I have bad acne. My first dermatologist appointment is not until the end of August! So I was wondering what over the counter medications have worked for you? Thanks!

Are you serious? the end of August. Why is it so far away? Well if your acne is bad then i doubt any over the counter products will work. The best i can think of is benzoyl peroxide. However, i really think that you should see the dermatologist sooner though since you want to avoid scarring at all costs. The sooner the better.

The dermatologist I am going to see is one of the best in my area and he is the only one who takes my insurance. Thanks to those who replied!

I wanted to buy this, but I have no idea if it will work, or is just another product for me to waste money and time on. Also i'm somewhat allergic to sulfur, and the cream contains 8% sulur. But I think I can use it still.
