I was on oral antibiotics and treatinion gel for over 3 months and nothing worked. I was then switched to aczone and I can not believe how well it worked the bumps are gone. I still have a little scarring from the acne but that will take time. I just love that I can wear a little bit of makeup and not worry about the bumps showing through the make up. It did not peel my skin and no burning. I love ... Show Full Comment

This medication seemed to work the first day or two. Skin looked clear and pores were tightening. On the third day though, my skin broke out worse than before using the product. And the acne was very painful, under the skin which is not what I usually suffer with. I did not like this product at all. It was very expensive and I was let down by this treatment.

I have over-40 cystic acne & have tried everything, including antibiotics, tretinoins, adapalene, azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, bc pills, and spironolactone, but nothing worked. My skin was dry, peeling, red, and terrible all-around, and I'd constantly hide behind a mask of makeup, even at the gym and pool. A month ago, I began a treatment of a sulfa antibiotic and Aczone ... Show Full Comment

I started using Aczone January 2012 before my June 2012 wedding. I had never suffered from acne of any form until my early 20's. Most of my acne was around my chin area and came in the form of the under the skin type, that were so painful, left scaring, that I had to have laser done to get rid of even, and lasted weeks at times! I tried so many over the counter things, different prescriptions ... Show Full Comment
