Acne board


I just got a prescription today for Benzaclin Gel. I am a little hesitant to try out new medications. Does anybody here use this to treat acne? If so, did it give you a rash or other side effects?

My son loves benzaclin. He has been using it for years and has never used oral antibiotics. Without it, his acne goes out of control. I would recommend using a non-drying, gentle cleanser while using it as it can dry your skin out.
