my 15yr old has severe acne on his face, chest, back, shoulders and arms. He has long hair over his face which obviously doesnt help as it gets greasy really quickly - though he does wash it and showers every day He has been applying a topical antibiotic lotion (zineryt) for 4 months and it didnt really help, although when he stopped using it his face resembled bubblewrap his skin was so bad.
anyhow, the dochas prescribed an initial 3 month course of oral antiobiotics, tetralysal, and obviously i am not keen to go down this route; but, my son is fed up with the acne and just wants to see some improvement.
any ideas/advice/help gratefully received ???
