    Sorry you've not had a reply to this! I'm lucky enough to have not had problems with acne (famous last words ), I know my sister and other people have found antibiotic creams/whatever really helpful though. For her it worked fairly quickly just to clear up the really bad bits, some people use them more long term though I think. What did your GP or pharmacist say about how to apply it when they gave it to you? There should be instructions and things on the leaflet too

    Benzoyl peroxide is better, ask your doctor for it.

    Also try and improve your facial hygiene, wash your face once a day at least. Apply moisturiser after.
