cure for acne found!
 
Cure for acne found, say scientists
it should be available failry quickly since the drug is already in use. They just have to make it into a cream.
is our suffering truly over?

I'd like to see this work for everyone who has different causes for each acne case. The only person who I have seen to literally work through the causes is Dr. Neil in new york. He was in the paper for 100% success rate.

I highly doubt the cure is going to be in topical form. I believe it has to be cured from the inside-out, and not by direct skin application. What happens when you stop using the topical or your skin becomes immune to it? All acne combatant topicals contain a drying agent (BP, Tea Tree Oil, Salicyclic (sp?) acid, etc). Accutane is the closest things to a cure, and it's a pill, and has proven to be very effective long-term.

Re: cure for acne found!
 
I am somewhat suspicious of this new "cure", it does not appear to have been developed into a cream as of yet, and as the previous poster pointed out, the more effective treatments for acne are internal treatments.

Its currently possible to treat acne by learning the cause of you acne, which for example maybe due to lack of Zinc in the diet and treat acne by taking the appropriate vitamin suppliments etc.

It appears the human race has been conditioned to treat acne externally. This new cure may very well be a cream form of Accutane, if this is the case, it may very well reduce the side effects normally associated with Accutane, but how effective will this new cure be?
