If you have acne, you probably fight a battle: how to find good acne medicines? It is common opinion: as if fighting acne wasn't hard enough, finding a proper acne medicine is another battle itself.

With all the options available on the market - both over-the-counter and prescribed - choosing a good medicine can be very difficult. That's why it's so important for you to talk to your doctor before any choice is made. Your doctor can guide you through this search and help you with the treatment.

Acne medicines are always something difficult to choose, because you only will know if they work for your case if you try it. Even if the medicine is prescribed by a doctor you can assure it will fit in your case until you try it.

When acne occurs, it is a sign that something is going wrong.

- The side effects that usually are caused by acne medicines must be taken into account when you decide going under a treatment. The side effects related to acne medicines are the most varied: from a simple headache to the serious liver or kidneys problems. Besides, pregnant women must stop the treatment as soon as she find out she is pregnant and all the women before going under a treatment must take a pregnancy test in order to confirm she is not pregnant. All this care is extremely necessary since some acne medicines can lead to miscarriage and birth defects. However, these care is for people who is under synthetic medicines. The alternative treatments, based on natural medicines, don't require so many care.

- There are, still, mainly two options for acne medicines.
