It's fine to use something topical if that's what your doctor recommended. Follow the specific plan laid out by his prescribing physician. He's only been on the medication for 12 days so he shouldn't be noticing much of anything. And remember his acne may actually get worse for a bit while his acne and pores are changing. This is probably why the topical was recommended.
