    I've used OTC, Minocycline and Differin Gel- here's my results so far

    Hello! I'm 16 yrs. old (female) and I went to the dermatologist back in August. I don't have bad acne, just little whiteheads on my forehead and occassional bigger "zits" every.. ummm.. 28 days. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> They put me on Differin and some other stuff that I took for about two weeks and threw out- it just dried my face SO BAD. I had to come home from school, because it was like I had the most worst sunburn and I was literally peeling. I stayed on the differin and went back in January. In January my derm. put me on Minocycline(twice a day, 10 days before my period) and told me to keep using my differin, which had been taking care of little bitty pimples here and there. They also did this "acne surgery" where they popped my whiteheads, pushed the gunk out. My derm. said that the differin would work MUCH better if my pores were cleaned out before using it, and she was right. Also that day I got on BCP- Ortho Try-Cyclen and I don't know if it's the minocycline or the BCP, but SOMETHING'S WORKING AND I'M SO HAPPY!!!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> When I start taking the sugar pills, it seems like I break out a little bit, but ever since I got on ALL this stuff, my pimples and blemishes seem to heal faster than before. Well, sorry for blabbing. But I just thought I'd share a little bit about my experiences.
