Well, the forum is called "Free for all", and I am inclined to be literal, so here is my question: my son suffers from some adolescent acne. His problem is not the worst, but enough to make him feel self-conscious. We gave up on the drugstore remedies and so far we have tried two topical prescription medications. The first made no difference. I am about to give up hope on the second, Stievamycin. I am reluctant to ask for the doctor to prescribe oral medications for fear of the side effects (liver damage, depression etc...). Any pharmacists, pharmacologists or experienced parents with any suggestions?
