Discussions that mention benzaclin

Acne board


I have been on my perscriptions for about 6 weeks now. i take 2 pills of minocylin per day one morning and one night. benzaclin i put on in the morning while retin-a micro i put on before bed. i can see some improvement, my face has began to peel and flake a lot. i have been pretty oily in the past, and i still have some, but much has been dried up. i have a very bad habit of touching and picking my face. i need to stop and i know i will heal much faster. if anyone has used this method before let me know, anyone welcome to respond. does any of these products (retin-a micro perhaps) push the dirt and crap out of your chest. i have had a little bit of increase in pimples on my chest, although nothing severe. thanks.
Wow you got hooked up by your derm huh? I never got minocyclin, but my boyfriend used it. Unfortunately, he was allergic to it and broke out in hives. I use Benzaclin every day, and it works pretty well. I also use Tazorac, which is a lot like Retin-A. I think it's safe to say that with all you're using, you should definately see SOME change. Using a BP and a Retinoid is the best way to treat acne externally. Mino will only help, I would think.

I have been on Minocycline for 11 weeks now and using Benzaclin for about 5 weeks. My face is completely clear at this moment. not one single pimple. I only have redness from the former breakout but that's it! Hopefully you'll have the same luck!
