prescription medication for acne

  

Acne mainly affects the skin on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. It can lead to scarring, leaving red marks and darkened areas, and forming pits and undulations in the skin. Acne is the most common skin disease and can affect people of all ages.

Prescription medication for acne works by reducing inflammation and infection of the skin. The active ingredient will reduce the amount of sebum produced and the acne should start to improve. Please note acne medications will not give instant results and it may take four to eight weeks before your skin improves.

Mild acne can be treated with a medicine bought without a prescription and can be purchased from our chemist shop. These products often contain salicylic acid or sulphur and benzoyl peroxide, which can cause your skin to irritated over a period of time.

Acne treatments taken orally include antibiotics, such as minocycline (Minocin), which reduce inflammation and infection by preventing bacteria multiplying and helping your body to kill them.
