Everyday Health: What did your dermatologist recommend?
Cody:I was prescribed a medication that is stronger than over-the-counter stuff. For me, I needed something stronger.
Dr. Wu:A dermatologist can prescribe pills such as antibiotics, though some parents may be resistant to that course of treatment. There are strong topical medications that can be effective, too. But it's important that parents help their teens be conscientious about their cleaning regimen, and teach them to be patient about letting the medicine work.
Everyday Health: Has the treatment been effective?
Cody:Within a week or two I had much clearer skin. Now my skin is great, and I'm not shy to talk about it — I don't look in mirror and say, "Oh, man." There are still times I get small pimples, so I use on-spot treatment at night. When my skin was at its worst, I was using the medication every night.
Everyday Health: What's been the effect on your career?
Cody:Having clear skin has helped my career. I'm not ashamed about having acne, and now I feel I can help other kids by encouraging them to take care of their acne right away, to see a dermatologist if the over-the-counter products aren't working, and to go to AcneHeroes.com for tips and to clear up some of the different myths. I'm also participating in a contest called the Clearly Spirited Heroes Challenge. I'll be visiting the schools of the winners, attending a pep rally and hanging out at the homecoming.
Dr. Wu:Cody is helping kids and their parents understand that other teens — even TV stars — go through the same things that they do, and that seeing a doctor is one of the best things they can do about their acne.
