Your skin is one of the most important organs of your body, and one of the most complex in solving any one of the 3,000 or more skin diseases that exist today, such as acne.
Acne is a disease of the hair follicles of the face, chest, and back that affects almost all teenagers during puberty, and a great percentage of people in their mid to late 20's and early 30's. It can be the source of social and even financial issues, holding people back from doing things they love to do, like going out in public and actively participating in social events.
We at Spence's Pharmacy have dozens of different formulations to isolate particular acne problems, from small break outs to major body-wide issues. Acne can be very patient-specific, and there is no cookie-cutter magic bullet that solves acne for everyone. Acne is a medical condition of the skin and solving it requires a regime tailored to the patient.
Typically a physician will suggest using antibiotics creams and gels, as well as an oral antibiotic.
