My son is 15 and has been on proactive. I am on Klaron and it works perfect for me. Should I recommend this lotion to his doctor for him to use and are there any side effects to teenagers?

Yes, Klaron is definitely safe and effective for teenagers. Please talk to your doctor.
Klaron (sulfacetamide sodium topical) is an antibacterial medication that interferes with the growth of bacteria on the skin.
Sulfacetamide sodium topical (for the skin) is used to treat acne, dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis (red, flaking skin rash), and certain skin infections.
