I have a moderate grading of Acne all over my chest, and back, and I am a 26 year old male. I've tried Proactive, I've tried topical antibacterial applications (via doctors prescription), and I have tried 3 repeats of consecutive oral antibacterials of 50mg tablets (via a Dermatologist prescription)
The tablets did not remove it all. However, while on the tablets, it did reduce the amount significantly on the skin. Now that I have run out of that prescription, for approximately a week - ALL of the acne has returned just as bad, in the same areas.
Are all of these oral treatments and topical treatments a waste of time? . They all seem to loosely manage the problem while using them; though none of them ever seem to actually FIX the problem?
In addition to this, are there laser treatments available that treat Acne itself (as opposed to the scars)?? and will this actually work?
