Acne Medicine

Besides topical treatments like cleansers and creams for the outside of your skin, you have the choice of different medications to fight acne from the inside. With quite the variety of acne medications to choose from the following is a list of some of the better known products that have provided results for users.

Before trying any acne medicine I recommend you first speak with your doctor to learn about possible side effects. Also, some medications require a prescription while others are available over the counter.

Minocycline - said to have the least side effects this acne medication is shown to help reduce swelling, redness and tenderness of pimples. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and kills acne causing bacteria.

Side effects may include: dizziness, headaches, hypersensitivity lupus/hepatitis, which causes severe joint pains. The other is pseudo tumor cerebri (an accumulation of fluid around the brain) that causes progressively worsening headaches and vision problems.

Erythromycin - a macrolide antibiotic, Erythromycin kills bacteria and treats infection. Meant for severe acne.

Side effects may include: dark yellow or brown urine, difficulty breathing, hearing loss, ringing in the ears, severe or watery diarrhea, skin rash or itching, swelling of face or neck, yellowing of eyes or skin, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain.

Other known medications include Tetracycline and Accutane, again talk with your doctor about possible side effects.

I must add as someone who has done a lot of research on skin care and written many reviews, there are many herbal treatments available to help fight the cycle of acne. So perhaps before you head to the doctor's office give one a try, they are much safer and don't have the damaging side effects that some prescriptions may cause.
