One more thing. Do you know the alternative treatments for some allergic to retin-a? I hate to think I'll be stuck with acne another 20 years.

I have had acne since I was about 11 years old. I have been to dermatologists before, but the topical antibiotic I was put on made my skin too oily. Once I started using birth control pills, the issue went away for about 20 years. In the last few years, I have stopped taken birth control, and my facial acne is worse than it ever was as a teenager. I was self-medicating with oral doxycycline over the past month, but didn't seen to get any relief, which is why I went back to the dermatologist. I had gotten the doxycycline as a preventative before I went out of the country recently, but didn't need to use them for anything. So I thought I wold use it for acne.
