The Key to Treating Acne

A product you can buy at the drug store to treat acne could work just as well as something your doctor may prescribe.

The key is reading the ingredients to make sure the product includes benzoyl peroxide. That's according to a new study that compared over the counter medication containing benzoyl peroxide with five antibiotics for treating acne.

Researchers in the British Journal, Lancet, found that after four months, about 60% of patients using the benzoyl peroxide had clearer skin, the same benefit as patients who paid more for a prescription.
