Customer Question

I'm 32 years ol male and have had acne for half my life. I have periods where I'm ok and periods where it comes back. At the moment it's back. The doctor has given me oxytetracycline which just doesn't help in the slightest. I don't want to take accutane as I've had that before and it was hard to live with the side effects. I'm literally at the end of my rope with this now. What other medication can help? Is there anything better than oxytetracycline
