Had my first derm appointment yesterday and while I didn't want to be put onto an antibiotic, that's what I got. BUT...I love my derm and feel that I can totally trust him. He didn't try to sell me product that he had available or sell me on expensive treatment. Instead he told me he'd like to keep the cost down as much as possible and gave me 2mths free of the antibiotic. He told me my face is FAR too dry for a topical so he recommended Apprilon. It's a doxycycline, modified release antibiotic that apparently does not cause complications from long term use. It was just released in Feb. of this year. Here's a link to a press release :http://bit.ly/V9rR0g
I understand that I'm a guinea pig here, but we'll see how this goes! I'm going to remain positive until there's reason not to be. Fingers crossed.
