What is acne?

Acne is a condition of the skin that occurs when the hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells. The resulting bumps can be small or large and may be firm or pus-filled. Acne can occur on the face, back, chest, and shoulders. Although it is most common in teenagers, acne can affect people of all ages. There are many factors that can contribute to the development of acne, including genetics, hormone levels, diet, and certain medications.

How is acne treated?

There are a variety of acne treatments available, ranging from over-the-counter products to prescription medications. The best course of treatment will vary depending on the severity of the acne and the individual’s skin type.  Some common acne treatments include topical creams and gels, oral medications, and photodynamic therapy.

  • Topical creams and gels – These products are applied directly to the skin and can help to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria. Common active ingredients include benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and retinoids.
  • Oral medications – These drugs are taken by mouth and can help to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria. Common oral medications for acne include antibiotics, isotretinoin, and birth control pills.
  • Photodynamic therapy – This is a treatment that uses light to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. It is often used in combination with other treatments, such as topical creams or oral medications.

In most cases, acne will respond well to treatment within a few weeks or months. However, some people may need to continue treatment for longer periods of time to achieve clear skin. If you are struggling with acne, talk to a doctor about your treatment options. With the right combination of medical and home remedies, you can achieve clear, healthy skin.

Common prescription medication for acne

Topical creams and gels

  • Retinoids – These drugs are derived from vitamin A and are used to treat mild to moderate acne. They work by increasing cell turnover and preventing the buildup of dead skin cells. Common side effects include dryness, redness, and irritation. Examples include: Tretinoin, Adapalene, Tazarotene
  • Topical antibiotics – These drugs are applied directly to the skin and work by killing bacteria. Common side effects include dryness, redness, and irritation. Examples include: Clindamycin, Erythromycin

Oral medications

  • Oral antibiotics – These drugs are taken by mouth and work by killing bacteria. Common side effects include gastrointestinal upset, yeast infections, and decreased appetite. Examples include: Tetracycline, Minocycline, Doxycycline
  • Oral contraceptives – These drugs are taken by mouth and work by regulating hormone levels. They can be used to treat acne in women who also suffer from irregular periods, PCOS, or other hormone-related conditions. Common side effects include nausea, weight gain, and decreased libido. Examples include: birth control pills
  • Isotretinoin – This drug is taken by mouth and works by reducing the production of oil. It is typically used to treat severe acne that does not respond to other treatments. Common side effects include dryness, redness, and irritation. Examples include: Accutane, Claravis, Amnesteem
