Got it--thanks

No nothing. Just daily creams and sometimes some home remedies
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 10 months ago

OK

This is a type of cystic acne

You need to see your doctor for a couple of prescriptions--oral doxycycline 100mg twice a day for a month and topical clindamycin gel twice a day for a month

Together those should clear this up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Will these medicines have any side-effects?
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 10 months ago

Usually not although the antibiotics can sometimes cause some mild abdominal pain or diarrhea

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
