The medication that is prescribed to you can only help in the short-term. Oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline and doxycycline, are often prescribed for acne. Taking antibiotics as directed will help your acne to clear and may reduce the risk of bacterial resistance – a condition that makes the antibiotic ineffective.

Always ask the doctor about the side effects of taking such oral medication because they might cause liver damage if taken over a long period of time. And if not advisable for ladies who are conceiving. I have customers who have taken the anti-biotics and their skin has remained with sensitive and have a tendency of redness ever since. I have personally taken then before, they might help initially however do not expect them to be the miracle cure.

Other than pharmaceutical approach, you can also go visit a recognized beauty therapist for help.
