Acne treatment can be expensive.  Here is a new combination that may help decrease the costs of treating acne.  A new study shows that a new cream plus a pill may help the best.  This new medicine contains adapalene with benzoyl peroxide.  The especially effective regimen is this cream WITH doxycycline (antibiotic) pill.

A study showed that after completing 24 weeks of therapy, patients with “severe acne” had a “clear or almost clear” rate of 50% as well as a mean 76% reduction in total lesion count.

In addition, patient satisfaction surveys showed 87% would use the above regimen again, 76% were satisfied with treatment, and best of all . . . 67% feel better about themselves since starting treatment.

Pretty good numbers. . . especially when treating teens.
