Aczone (dapsone) is topical gel used for the treatment of acne. Aczone works best on pimples that are big, red, and inflamed although it is not understood quite how it works.
Unfortunately, Aczone doesn't work for everyone. Everyone's skin is different and responds differently to different things.
If after 3 months you are seeing no improvement it's probably time to try something else, maybe an oral antibiotic or isotretinoin.
