Bad Acne – Does Your Severe Acne Need Drastic Treatment?

What To Do About Bad Acne

bad acne imageThose people suffering from bad acne may have already tried dozens of the different treatments available to try and get rid of it and quite possibly all of them failed to make much if any improvement, even benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid may have also failed to have any effect.

It is possible some people may not have done anything at all to try and alleviate the problem and just hoped it would go away by itself, sadly with acne this is not very likely to happen except perhaps in the case of pregnant women.
Failure to tackle acne in its early stages of blackheads and pimples can lead to the bad acne condition that you may now have so it is very important to take action against it as soon as the problem becomes apparent.

If, on the other hand, you have tried just about everything at the pharmacy and every home remedy for acne known to man then your next course of action will be to visit your doctor for some prescription medication, usually in the first instance you will be put on a course of oral antibiotics either on their own or in conjunction with other drugs that may or may not help, sadly there is no way of knowing how effective something will be until it is taken for a month or two, sometimes the condition can even worsen as a result of taking medications in which case you will need to tell your doctor so that they can prescribe an alternative, as there are many different types available.

Bad acne is nearly always going to be a problem to treat even with powerful drugs such as tetracycline, erythromycin, minocycline and clindamycin which may fail to cure the problem.
There are still a couple of avenues open however in the form of steroid injections and actually have the worst areas drained and cut out by a surgeon.
The other is the use of Accutane, which has a very high success rate at curing bad acne, but the bad news is the sometimes serious side-effects that this medication can give the recipient, who is the only person to decide if they are willing to take the risk.
