    Perhaps they are limited by £££ .Why not find another GP and go to them with your research if your situation merits it?

    My doctor prescribed me some duac gel. And it's effective. I still have some spots but a lot of the ones on my forehead are gone!

    Well I guess thats a good way of talking yourself out of things.

    Why not join one of the acne sites if you have a serious affliction and see how other members work with their GP.

    This 100% worked for me but then when I stopped it, my acne came back and after using it again it stopped working glad it worked for you!!
