FAQ About Acne: Topical Medications and Oral Antibiotics for Adult Acne

Posted in Adult Acne by . | Leave a Comment
Can adult acne be treated with topical medications? Adult acne can often be treated with topical medications, such as benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.  Topical medications can be very effective when treating acne and they are a very important part of acne treatment plans for even patients with severe acne.  For adults in particular, retinoids offer anti-aging benefit and improved skin appearance while simultaneously treating acne. Which oral antibiotics are best for adult acne? Tetracycline antibiotics, such as doxycycline, Doryx, minocycline and Solodyn, are the most commonly used oral antibiotic treatments for acne.  In addition, Azithromycin is sometimes used for acne treatment, particularly during the summer months when excessive sun exposure while taking tetracycline antibiotics can lead to sunburn.
