Hello! What should I eat to cure pimples, acne and skin problems Like those.? What should I include and what should be avoided in my daily diet 4 dat?

Wrong question: Your question is really about how to control acne. Diet is not the answer except that you are overweight and may have PCOS. We need to know more about you and evaluate your type of acne. PCOS is likely to improve with weight reduction. You probably need spironolactone with or without a low androgen birth control pill. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

What should I do about this skin or acne problem?

Scientific Rx: If two weeks on over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you, get with your physician. You may be a rx for a topical retinoic acid derivative, the oral contraceptive pill (if you're female), topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline, or a dermatology referral for possible isotretinoin. All acne is manageable today; it's not a hygiene or lifestyle problem. We can help. ...Read more

Org/diseases-conditions/rosacea/basics/definition/con-20014478 & http://www. Rosacea. Org/. Then go see your Family Doc & Dermatologist for evaluation & treatment. ...Read more

Have someone apply acne meds (benzoyl peroxide or Retin-A + topical antibiotic like cleocin). If pimples r large & cystic, see dermatologist for more intense treatment. ...Read more

I have an acne problem. What kind of soap would you advise me to dry my skin?

Acne washes/soaps: I'm guessing you're from Germany although I'm not sure why your location is "Vereinigte Staaten". Here in the States, there are many over-the-counter acne washes & soaps, none of which are proven better than the rest, which is why they all vie for marketshare. You'll need to try individual ones out on yourself. Given your age, discuss your concerns w/your Family Doc as you may have rosacea. ...Read more

What can be the underlaying problem of my daughter having acne recurring after her skin clears up?

What can be the underlaying problem of my daughter having acne recurring after her skin clears up?

She's young: Acne is not curable, but tends to go away some after the hormonal surge of the teens and twenties. If the oral contraceptive pill is appropriate for and desired by her, it can make acne remit, or she deserves some scientific rx that actually works. Consider topical Clindamycin along with whatever's worked so far, move further only if required. Glad you're a caring mother, good luck. ...Read more

What are drug free alternatives for reducing my acne problems? For my age having oily and pimple prone skin..

Forgive my frankness: You're asking for "drug-free alternatives", yet you are taking Isotretinoin and you have already got acne scars. You need to decide what you want. No "natural" / "pop" / "magic" remedy is going to match scientific medicine's effectiveness in managing a very serious personal and professional liability. Stay the course with your present regimen, or you'll regret it for the rest of your life. ...Read more

Semen and Skin: Nope. Not at all. I do not know where you got this myth but it is indeed a doozy. Warm water and a gentle soap is the best for your acne. You family doctor based upon your exam may add a medicated wash. But, semen will not be one to use. ...Read more
