Acne is treated with a variety of OTC (over the counter) and prescription drugs in the form of topical creams, gels, lotions, or pills that are taken orally (by mouth).

Most dermatologists agree that a two prong approach, with both oral antibiotic pills and topical medications, is one of the best treatments for mild to moderate cases of acne.

Finding a regiment of washing and medications that works for your skin may take 6 to 8 weeks or longer.

I know it's frustrating but you really have to be patient and keep seeing your dermatologist. If you have a problem with any of the medications, don't be afraid to tell your doctor.

Severe or overly persistent cases of nodular acne vulgaris would most likely be treated with Accutane (a.k.a. isotretinoin).
