The general rule of thumb is to give any new medication at least 6 to 8 weeks before you start to see consistent results.

If your dermatologist prescribed both oral antibiotic pills and a topical cream or lotion you might see faster results since the problem is being attacked from the inside and outside.

Since everyone's different, the first medications that your dermatologist prescribes might not work for you or cause undesirable side effects.

It's important that you don't give up hope or become impatient. Even if the medications cause your skin to become red, irritated or to start peeling, you need to keep on using them.

Some medications have a "break in" period where they might worsen your skin condition and then begin to slowly improve it.
