A 38-year-old member asked:

What can be done to treat acne on the face, chest, and shoulders?

Acne Therapy: Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. With most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. There are topicals like ziana and epiduo and oral medication like solodyn (minocycline). See your dermatologist.

Probably not: In japan they showed it could happen, but with 40% peroxide. It's illegal in the usa, here we only get up to 3-5% no proof here.

Sorry, none.: Eye transplants are not yet feasible, even with potent antirejection drugs. The optic nerve connections are not capable of transmitting visual impulses even if the actual procedural steps were performed. Corneal transplants are commonly done as needed for corneal scarring or diseases, and cataract removal and new lens placement is routine, but no eye transplants!
