    Actually, AGAINST acne LOL:

    Pantethine (B5) 750 mg with 250 mg of L Carnitine each three times per day. Avoid antibiotics if possible.

    i had terrible acne through my twenties. took oxytet, erythromycin, minocycline. didn't do me any good. i will copy this down a number of times and keep it in my wallet. i will whip out a copy and hand it over to any young person with acne i happen to see.
    might do some good. might not. but worth a try for sure. cheers.

    Just today I had a patient rave on about how well the B5/carnitine combo is working for his acne. And he has been on doxycycline for a long time already.

    High doses of B-5 and fish oil worked well for me, and avoiding high glycemic index foods. Those 3 are big time. Never heard of the L Carnitine idea. Will have to research that one a little, interesting.

    This seems to work OK, I'm doing a couple of things to work through some very bothersome acne on my shoulders and traps, I think the area is calming down but use of a zinc soap, and hot compresses are part of the equation. Also using Nizoral. While my skin is easing in inflammation, I have the remnants not scarring per se but hyperpigmentation of pink-ish spots.
    I've got a history of basal cell carninoma and will talk to the dermatologist very soon and discuss my acne at that time.

    It takes time, as with all acne therapies. But you should see improvement pretty quickly.

    Is acetyl-l-carnitine acceptable or does it have to be l-carnitine?

    Thank you.

    This is a doctor discussing his success with autohemotherapy. One of his patients was a girl with severe acne. It took only 4 treatments to clear it up. I've done autohemotherapy on myself a dozen times. I think it helped cure my torn Achilles tendon.
