Can clotrimazole reduce acne?
I was using benzaclin with differen, both of which worked fine, but for some reason my dermatologist wouldn't re-prescribe my benzaclin and prescribed clotrimazole instead. And my skin is breaking out. So, I wanted to know if anyone else had been prescribed clotrimazole for acne--it's a fungal medication, right?

ask for doxycycline 100 mg twice daily

thats right you are on a antifun=gal

need a antibacterial

Well i havent but i just buy nadinnola face cleanser and moisterising creame and i give it a 9/10 i dont have acne ..

but if your stuff isnot working take ordinary bar soap and a warm rough facial towel and scrub them shits away i know them shits will be gone trust me i had shits on my face. {P.S ♥ Nira J}

Clotrimazole is a mixture of trimethoprim and sulfamethexazole. these are both antobacterial agents effective against streptococcus and staphylococcus species. the logic behind the usage of these agents ar to reduce the amounts of resident bacteria (mentioned above) as these microbes utilise the excess sebum to proliferate and worsen acne. by redcuing the microbe concentrations, the skin is cleaner and this reduces the severity of the acne. these agents must be used twice daily for six months to achieve maximum results.

unfortunately, these agents offer short term alleviation from acne and when these drugs are withdrawn, bacteria begin to once again accumulate and potentiate the former. the only 'cure' is to target the causative agent, ie sebum. the only drug that can be used to decrease sebaceous gland activity is isotretinoin. these agents should also be used for 6 months at a dose determined per body weight.

consult your specialist for more info

hope i helped:)

Not at all! Clotrimazole is an anti-fungal not an antibiotic, and til now there is report or scientific paper that announces the fungi as a cause for acne.
In addition, some natural fungi that live on our skins, are protecting us from being infected by microbes. By using Clotrimazole you weaken this protective shield and expose yourself unprotected to other agents that may cause acne.

By the way, The previous answer by Mohamed K is wrong. He is mistaken Clotrimazole by Co-Trimoxazole! Trust me, I'm a pharmacist.
