The author noted that acne treatment, both local and systemic
(whole body) forms, must take into account the type of acne and
expected prognosis. Because of drug resistance, antibiotics should
only be used for a limited time and as part of combination treatments.
In women, new generations of birth control pills can be part of
the treatment regimen. Also, since isotretinoin cannot be used
while pregnant, zinc can be a viable alternative. In all, cosmetic
care should be a fundamental part of treating acne.
