If you have used Rocephin and experienced an increase or decrease in acne, please tell us about it here. Be sure to include as much information as possible, including when you started taking Rocephin, the dosage, other side effects you experienced, and anything else that might be relevant. Acne is sometimes a side effect of prescription drug usage, but other times it has to do with hard-to-track-down lifestyle changes, bacteria in your gut, or nutrient deficiency. In our experience, the best way to treat acne is by eliminating sugar, flour, dairy, caffeine, and vegetable oils from your diet. Supplementing zinc, vitamin b complex, boron, melatonin, and SOD is likely to help as well.
Acneresearch.org offers resources for acne sufferers, including success stories, links to and summaries of dozens of clinical acne studies, and a lifestyle routine designed to help you treat acne naturally. If you want individual advice or are interested in contributing to the body of knowledge on acne, fill out our survey. You do not need to live with acne — it is a disease caused by a combination of a western lifestyle and western diet. By treating your acne, you’ll likely find yourself healthier, happier, and more attractive — physically and emotionally.

I’ve been battling moderate cystic and non cystic adult acne for over a year now and tried several different treatments including clindamycin topical and solodyn. I recently had a severe sinus infection and possibly strep throat and was treated with 1g rocephin IM, 10 days of augmentin BID, a steroid shot. My face has never cleared up so fast. I finished the augmentin 3 days ago and my face is softer, pores smaller, and I only have 1 pustule on my face. I can’t think of anything else that might have changed. I have had augmentin before and a steroid shot but never rocephin.
I am 25 and have had severe back acne since I was 17. I lived in Singapore until I was 19, so my early treatment, which was quite effective was lots of sun and swimming. However, after moving to North America it got much worse due to the climate. It was still easier to control in California, where it was warmer, but near impossible in British Columbia (where it’s freezing cold, the sun only shines for 2 or 3 months a year and you certainly can’t get in the water without a drysuit). I had daily breakouts which were only controllable with a scalpel until recently.
A year ago I started taking Skate Liver Oil for a different reason and noticed a significant improvement, which I attributed to the Retinol content. However, over time, my body seemed to get used to it, and the acne crept back (although not as bad as before). The next significant help, was I changed my body wash to one containing coconut oil. This also made a big difference, and helped control it as long as I was showering at home. This topical solution however, was one requiring lots of maintenance, and when I traveled or stayed away from home, my acne would get worse as well.
I would say all these probably reduced my outbreaks by 40-60% depending on other factors such as diet and stress, but they required maintenance and attention. If I forgot, it would come back.
One month ago, I had a gonorrhea scare [turned out it was a NGU (UTI)] and had the Ceftriaxone (Rocephin) exposure shot. Surprisingly, my back has completely cleared up since this shot, and I have not scene a return. While it’s only been a month this is the most promise I’ve ever seen. Hopefully it will last.
