Non-rational prescribing of oral antibiotics in acne is common, and there is currently an unmet need for up-to-date guidelines that specifically address these issues. Presented here is a set of recommendations on the use of oral antibiotics in acne, developed by a group of European acne specialists, designed to be considered by dermatologists and general practitioners in their daily practice throughout Europe. Recommendations cover optimal choice of antibiotic, drug doses, duration of treatment, combination treatment, and maintenance therapy.
