You : You have extremely high blood pressure – a hypertensive crisis is often defined by a systolic blood pressure of 180 or higher or a diastolic blood pressure of 120 or higher.

The key is that all acne can be managed nowadays, either with topical benzoyl peroxide or simple prescription meds. Best wishes. ...Read more

Cow's milk causes acne me ( i stopped drink) but buttermilk not (from a milkman near to me ) . Can you explain why ??  And can i take goat yogurt ??

Milk acne: Goat's milk or yogurt is different from Cow's milk so it is possible that you can use it without the sensitivity that you get from the cow's milk. If it is true acne, that is not an allergic reaction, but a sensitivity. ...Read more

Would it be recommended to to take acne medication if i drink alcohol every once in a while later in the day?

I wouldn't advise it: The simple antibiotics like tetracycline and Erythromycin aren't a problem if you want to drink in moderation. If you're taking isotretinoin, it might be a good idea to not to drink much alcohol, as each can be a little rough on the liver. ...Read more
