I'm getting acne flare-ups again and I'm almost 24 now. I had it when I was about 20 and went on Accutane. It seemed to work, but I'm getting it again where I shave. So I went to a dermatologist yesterday and he prescribed me antibiotics and benzoil peroxide. But I dont trust this guy. I asked him if it matters how I shave and he said no. Doesn't matter what I use, gel, foam, soap, razor,electric, nothing. This is clearly bull. He also told me it doesnt matter what soap I use to clean my face, which is a bunch of crap I know. I lost all confidence in this doctor within 10 minutes of starting the visit. He wants me to use this stuff for 3 months to see if there's any improvement. 3 MONTHS of the simplest dumb prescription anyone could have given me. I was expecting at least a little information. Am I over-reacting, or should I get another opinion? This is a really embarassing problem. I was looking forward to this appointment and now I am feeling pretty hopeless. Thanks.
