    Right, i got some mild mild acne, nothing too serious around my chin (shaving area) and my forehead, nothing too serious at all.

    And also the skin where there isn't acne is like kinda spotty, not red spots but like loads of whiteheads I guess they're called lol

    Anyway, doctor first gave me dalacin t topical lotion for 1 month, didnt do ****. So now he gave me Oxytetracycline tablets, 2 in the morning and 2 in the night. Will they get rid of my mild acne and my whiteheads?

    Doctor said he used it 24 years ago and it took him quite a few years but because i'm young (16) and i got mild acne he said it'll work quickly

    Can you guys give me your experiences with it and stuff

    Cheers, take it easy ya'll.

    dalacin is indeed a waste of time. those tablets should work, i'm using them now but it will take a least a few weeks before it starts to really go. make sure you mouisturise your skin as much as possible too, to help with the skin regeneration process and to avoid scarring etc.

    yeah tetracycline is an antibiotic really commonly used for treating acne. Its quite often a fairly slow thing, but stick with it because its pretty effective. Ill also add my backing behind the dalacin being a pile of ****

    I used oxytetracycline in the past and it helped. As well as the usual type of acne, I also had what you've described - lots of small, white spots on my face. I also had spots on my back and upper arms. Oxytetracycline totally cleared up my arms and back, and made a great improvement on my face too.
    Hope it works for you!

    I used oxytetracycline for a long time, and just under a year or so after I started taking it my skin was completely clear. The only problem I had was that it did eventually stop working and my skin went back to being just as bad as it was before.
