A recent report has warned that acne cures may not be as effective as thought to be. Further, experts from the University of Nottingham have said there is not much proof to show that costly treatments are more effective than the cheaper ones.

They also warn that prolonged use of acne treatments could lead to resistance of the antibiotics contained in these drugs.

This clearly places the need for more research on non-antibiotic therapies to bring relief to acne.
