I know this drug can be prescribed to actually help acne although it is not the drug of choice for it.But does anyone thing it can cause acne or cause acne to be worse if you are prone! I started it in Nov. 2008 hoping I can get a two punch to help my acne which was kinda bad but not horrific and help the CF. Well since my acne is HORRIFIC and I am now under a dermatologist care and wondering if it is the Zithromax that has caused such a significant change. No other drugs have changed. Any ideas or thought!

I have used it a number of times in the Z-Packs and it never
has caused me any problems. My Brother has taken it every other day
for a year with no problems as well.

I use Zithromax and still have flare ups. I notice when I'm sicker and in need of a tune up, my acne will be worse. I've been told its cuz acne is caused by bacteria and we always have some sort of bug reeking havoc. But right now my face is clear, I'm on Zpac, but also just had a tune-up in March. So....I'm not convinced Zpac does squat for me but the bacteria thing does make sense...

although I am on zythromax and almost 17 years old, and probably dont wash my face often enough, I have never had a single pimple or anything. I think part of acne is just (like CF) genetics. did your parents have bad acne as teens?

oh yea- those things on my face that probably look like acne (on my cheeks) are actually burst capillaries. (from coughing so hard.)
