can you use gelmicin for acne!?
I've been braking out lately and have had many big nasty red pimples so i was wondering if i used this would it clear it up??? ## Hello, Girly! How are you?

Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications? Has anything changed in your diet or skin care routine recently?
