Combining treatments is the best way to combat acne

That’s according to a new guide to combat acne from the American Academy of Dermatology. Follow this link to read the full story: Chicago Tribune Article). After patients complete a course of antibiotics they should continue using topical or skin therapy to manage their acne according to the guideline. Topical medications such as retinoids and benzoyl peroxide can also be used together, the guidelines say. Also girls and women with acne may benefit from taking birth control pills, which can be combined with other treatments the experts noted.  Oral isotretinoin can be used for severe acne that does not respond to other treatments.

Dermatologist, Dr Ingrid Lopez-Gehrke, recently recognized the benefits of Epiology Anti-Acne Cream used in conjunction with oral isotretinoin.

Epiology is a new and exciting topical preventative system for acne sufferers to use in conjunction with prescription therapies. That’s because it alleviates dryness and redness caused by prescription products. It’s non-irritating and a great option for sensitive skin types. It also helps to prevent the further spread of bacteria, so really is the ‘go to’ product for anyone who finds other topical products irritating or drying to their skin.

    My son has been struggling to keep his acne under control. He has tried a few treatments, but they haven’t worked very well. I didn’t realize there are dermatology compounds that can be used topically to help combat the issue. I’ll be sure to share this info with my son.

    It sure is good to know that it is okay and best to mix and match treatments to fight acne in the skin such as topicals, antibiotics, or birth control pills for some. I am having acne breakouts, as we speak and I cannot seem to identify what the main cause is. Though combining treatments appear to achieve good results, I believe that we still need to know which of these medicines will be good for our skin to test and consulting a dermatologist will solve this dilemma. Thank you for sharing!
