Prescrition Treatments for acne

Millions of people across the country suffer from moderate to severe cases of acne. In many of these situations, dermatologists choose to prescribe medication to more effectively treat their patients’ skin conditions. Both topical and systemic treatments can be prescription-strength, and doctors generally evaluate each patient on a case-by-case basis. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, some of the most common treatments include: corticosteroid injections, oral antibiotics, oral contraceptives, topical antimicrobials, and topical retinoids. All of these treatments have proven to reduce the symptoms of acne, whether by decreasing inflammation or by using Vitamin A to unclog pores. These types of treatments can only be prescribed by a doctor and are typically much stronger doses than over-the-counter products. If you or your children are affected by persistent acne, it may be in your best interest to discuss your options with a dermatologist or other doctor. He or she can help diagnose the severity of the acne and get you started with an effective skin care regimen. In many cases, you will be given a prescription, so be sure to use your True Care membership card to receive the most discounts on your prescribed medication. With proper treatment, clear skin can be both attainable and affordable.

"I finally found something that really helps! The first week I received the Advantage Card, I saved $418 on Dental expenses. That was money I would have had to pay out of my own pocket."
- J. Britt, Orlando, FL

"I just want to say thanks for having this service for those that cannot afford dental insurance. I have noticed the savings since the very first time I used it, and I've never even heard of Discount Dental Plans before. I was so pleased with the company I called in to see what other programs they offer and signed up for coverage on Medical and Chiropractic as well!"
-Kevin, Philadelphia, PA

"The free prescription drug card is such an added bonus. I'm on a maintenance drug that used to cost me $107.67 every three months. After receiving my free discount drug card it now costs just $43.42. This is an annual saving of $257, which is even more than the entire plan cost. What a great free bonus to go along with my dental plan."
-Hassan, Sacramento, CA
