Henry Ford Health System Dermatology Division Head and Director of Dermatology Clinical Research, Dr. Linda Stein Gold was among a group of dermatology experts from across the country who recently developed new guidelines for how to effectively treat acne. She talks about everything from which OTC medication really works to the newest combination prescription drugs and a home remedy trend of using Coconut Oil to combat acne. One dramatic shift in how acne is now being treated is to get away from relying on antibiotics as a long-term treatment. Dr. Stein Gold explains that today, with the arsenal of treatment options available, there is no reason for anyone to suffer with acne. Several studies are underway in search of even more treatments including drugs to control excess sebum or oily skin, which contributes to acne.
