I've had moderate acne since I hit puberty and parts of my face are very red due to picking and some light scarring. The only thing I've ever done routinely is wash my face, usually once daily with Neutrogena deep cleanse. I went to the dermatologist on March 20th and was placed on this routine:

AM
Wash face (I choose to use Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser)
Apply Azone gel 5%
Apply moisturizer (I choose to use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion)
Take Doxycycline (oral antibiotic) with full glass of water

PM
Wash face
Apply moisturizer
Wait 1-2 hours
Apply Retin A Micro 0.1%
Take Doxycycline (oral antibiotic) with full glass of water

I am currently on day 4 and I have a few patches of acne especially on chin and around nose. Skin is also dry and slightly painful.
