astrid Posted October 26, 2012 Share Posted October 26, 2012 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! astrid Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
