And the most common Acne Medicine that is prescribed today is accutane which is a form of vitamin A. This pills works works by makingoil glands smaller, decreases the amount of sebum(oil) produced, reduces the shedding of skin cells, and it kills bacteria. Accutane is considered to be one of the most effective acne treatments but is only to be used once all other options have failed. Another treatment very common in our days that is prescribe is oral antibiotics which is used for the treatment of more severe acne and occasionally for moderate cases. Like topical antimicrobials, oral antibiotics reduce the P. Acnes bacteria and subsequently decrease inflammation. As with all antibiotics, it is important to use only as directed to avoid the risk of the bacteria becoming resistant to the drug.
The most typical antibiotics prescribe by doctors are: erythromycin, minocycline, and tetracycline.
Women who suffer from acne can use oral contraceptives and can use this pills for a log term like acne therapy. They work by suppressing the overactive sebaceous glands responsible for the oily skin secretions that lead to clogged pores and acne
