Well, my son has been taking minocin(100 mg 2x day) and applying benzaclin am & pm and using a BP wash, for about 2 months now. Sadly to say, not much improvement. He only has a few active pimples at a time, but they just keep coming. I don't know if he's ever going to improve more than what he has. The red marks from previous outbreaks have faded some, but he keeps getting new ones along with the new pimples. He really doesn't want to do accutane, and I don't want to push him. Anyone have any luck after this long with these meds? I'm beginning to think he will just have to suffer with acne until he outgrows it. I feel so frustrated and discouraged. I just hope he doesn't feel as bad about it as I do. If he does, he's good at hiding it.
