Answer by Jana
First of all it depends on how severe the acne is. Over-the-counter treatment may not work for your brother. If you are looking for a cheap fix, make sure he washes his face in the morning and before he goes to bed with warm water and a facial cleanser. There are a lot of facial cleansers out there, but if he wants one that will treat acne, it should contain benzoyl peroxide or salyclic acid. You mentioned ProActiv in your question, so he may want to try the off brand which is called AcneFree. This product usually costs around $ 20 and is a lot like the ProActiv system in that it uses a face wash, astringent/toner, and moisturizer. This product will usually work for most people if you use it correctly. If he feels that his acne is still not going away after using the product for a few months, then he should get an appointment with a dermatologist so they can prescribe him some more serious acne treatment.
Instead of Accutane which is the “last resort” treatment for acne and is usually used for only the most severe cases of acne, he may want to look into Minocyclin and Retin-A. Both of those are only available by prescription.
