    no I know what acne antibiotics do. I just don't understand the need for the poll, surely we should be promoting other ways of getting rid of acne then making people aware of what antibiotics are out there. and that only people can take part in this poll if they've used these antibiotics, just saying that one on a more general subject would've been more user-friendly.
    Skin is my passion.

    i think the poll is more or less to see how people get along with certain antibiotics that have acne. the poll is old, but there are more newer votes on it so it is continuing. this isn't to say that antibiotics are the answer to acne. doctors use antibiotics usually when acne is infected. the doctors don't use them indiscriminately. when all else has failed an individual in helping to keep bad acne at bay, that is when the antibiotics are prescribed. this is just a poll, it is not promoting antibiotic use.

    I've get rid of my pimples using Retin A and this was a huge improvement for my life, especially my social life. But a few days ago, my skin care professional that well help me alot!!!, When I've told her about my acne condition and how I use Retin-A weekly, even after 3 years of treatment, she told me that he heared a substance from Retin-A works as an anti-wrinkle treatment. So, I control acne.

    I have never been on pills for acne. I have suffered a lot because of them and still continues to be so but I still don't want to be on any chemicals. The only reason being none of them is going to have no side-effects and though I hate pimples and acne I don't want to suffer in any other way because of them.

    Hi, Acne is a serious problem especially for girl’s lol. Yeah I am also in the same problem but I don’t use chemical and any products for that. I believe home remedies are the best solution for acne. Drink plenty of water per day, wash your face as much possible if you follow these two think you don't need to use any product.

    Using Doxycycline since I was a teen on and off. It works great but takes time to show results. Recommended to take at least 3 months and gradually reduce the dosage after that.

    I too suffered from acne and I think this is the most irritating thing I've ever faced. I recovered it with revitol acnezine. Since it has come into the market, the treatment for acne has become easier and less expensive. By using this product you can remove those bumps or pimples appearing on your face. It's a must try!

    Usually the first choice for treating acne is tetracycline — such as minocycline or doxycycline — or a macrolide. Oral antibiotics should be used for the shortest time possible to prevent antibiotic resistance. Oral antibiotics are best used with topical retinoids and benzoyl peroxide.
