My 15 year old son and my 12 year old daughter both use this product in conjunction with a topical antibiotic. Their skin cleared nicely when they used it as directed, however if they missed a couple of days, the breakouts were pretty bad. It has helped with the deeper cyst type acne on my daughter's back as well.

my daughter used this product in conjunction with a topical antibiotic. When the antibiotic ran out she continued on adapalene. It cleared up her acne and improved the appearance of her scars.

My son has been on the medication Epiduo for 5 days. His acne is 50% worse, many more pustules, papules than when he started. I am reading that this is to be expected but it is hard to take. Hopefully in 4 weeks things look better. he is also taking doryx.
