I have acne and red spot on my face...I am going to  use benzac (benzoyl peroxide) AC gel for treating it..So it is good choice or not? Plz suggest

A good first try: Benzac ac (http://www.Benzac.Com.Au/why-it-works) is basically benzoyl peroxide with an added combo of absorbing beads and glycerin all act to dry up a lot of the oils that can clog up skin pores, causing an acne lesion. Without seeing you i cannot say if it will work but it may be a good start. See a dermatologist if this doesn't help. ...Read more

I have acne and am taking Roaccutane (40mg per day). I squeezed an under the skin spot, the area of my cheek is red, how can I reduce the redness?

I have acne and am taking Roaccutane (40mg per day). I squeezed an under the skin spot, the area of my cheek is red, how can I reduce the redness?

Try ice: First of all, try not to squeeze your acne since it causes inflammation and bacteria can get further under the skin causing scarring and potentially severe infections. Low dose hydrocortisone cream (0.5%) can be used for 48 hours to reduce the redness, but can't be used on a regular basis because it will hurt the skin. ...Read more

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

No: Usually dark spots corrector is used on dark pigments seen on the hands as women age. Because it is formulated for the spots or lentigos on the hands I would not use it on the face. Acne has an antinflammatory component that aging spots do not have. To avoid possible scarring of the facial skin I would not recommend using it on the face. Follow label directions for safest use. ...Read more

I have acne but would like to reduce the redness left in the spots that no longer have any, any suggestions?

Treat your acne: The red spots remain after the injury's been done and there's basically nothing you can do but give them two months to fade. All acne is manageable nowadays. If you still have it after two weeks using benzoyl peroxide, or you have it on your trunk, get with your physician. You owe it to yourself -- acne's a personal and professional liability. Good luck. ...Read more
