Doctor: I do understand that you would like to try the medication for acne that is improving your friend’s symptoms. Acne presen t differently is every individual and what may work for one may not necessarily work for the other.The treatment of acne depends of the type of acne (i.e. whether it is a non-inflamed comedone or an inflamed comedone) and also the grade of the acne. You will require to see your doctor or a dermatologist for appropriate treatment of acne that is suitable for your skin. Take care.
