A 17-year-old male asked:

i use oxy pads daily fur acne. well it says use up to 3 times daily. i just used 6 pads at one time. is this ok?

Probably not: 6 pads is likely to dry your skin out too much. The idea of three times a day use is to even out your skin throughout the day! don't forget to use an oil free moisturizer after cleansing.

A 30-year-old member asked:

What makes cystic nodular acne different from everyday acne?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in

Cystic Nodular Acne: Cystic nodular acne differs from standard acne by the type of skin lesion that predominates, which is the target for medical treatments. In typical acne, the main skin lesions are comedones (superficial whiteheads & blackheads). Cystic nodular acne has more inflammation (redness, pain) & deeper skin lesions (cysts, nodules) that are less responsive to topical treatments & require oral medication.

Could the clarisonic acne daily clarifying cleanser work?

Get tough with it: This is weak, pricey, gimmicky stuff. Grab some 5% benzoyl peroxide and apply it 2x/day. If you're not clear in two weeks, or it's on your trunk, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment.

A 18-year-old female asked:

Could drinking black coffee daily be causing my acne breakouts?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Peggy Ching

Yes and no, or maybe: The easiest way to answer your question is to stop drinking black coffee for a few days and see. Or ask yourself if you had the problem before you started to drink black coffee daily. If you have been drinking coffee daily for a long time and acne recently breakout, then it probably is not the coffee, and if you only started recently and acne breakout followed then maybe it is the culprit.
