Thank you

How long have you had this? What have you tried to treat it?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I’ve tried so many i can’t even remember the names

So this is acne, I can advise but ideally need to know what you have used. Have you had anything on prescription?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
i’ve used st ives face scrub, simple face wash and neutrogena face scrub
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
i’m currently using a neutrogena face wash

Okay thanks. I would advise for this a long term antibiotic to reduce the inflammation to allow the topical creams to work. Lymecycline is my suggestion and can be used for a few months. I would try this with a topical benzoyl peroxide and possible a retinoid.

the antibiotic would however require a prescription which your GP can prescribe if they agree
