Acne can cause embarrassment and stress for those who suffer from it. Many over the counter topical treatments are available but don't work for everyone. If you need something stronger, your doctor can prescribe a stronger topical treatment or pills.
The most popular prescription acne medication is Retin-A. This topical treatment, a vitamin A derivative, is very strong. It can cause stinging, redness or peeling skin. Retin-A also leads to increased sun sensitivity so it is very important to always wear a sunscreen while using this product.
