UPDATE: Acne Dr. Appointment

Recommended Posts

HI there,

Molly saw the ped. this morning, who said just what one of the kind replies to my original thread on Wednesday said--- bacteria on the skin was causing the terrible infected pores.


He prescribed a month of oral antibiotics (minocycline) and a topical cream containing benzoyl peroxide and another antibiotic, clindamycine to use daily. Our pediatrician is very cautious about antibiotics-- I think Molly's been on them maybe three times in her life--- but he said in these cases, it's the only way to break the cycle.


So we shall see how it clears up-- I'll keep you updated!
