Are essential oils effective at curing cystic acne? I have tried everything even cortizone (hydrocortisone) shots. Nothing works.
Use the hard stuff: "essential oils" are for aromatherapy and and other stuff that's largely entertainment. For real cystic acne, your best move is to get with a real dermatologist and discuss accutane. It's not cheap, pleasant, or entirely risk-free, but for most folks it's well worth it. If you're female, also try to find out whether / why you might have extra androgens on board & if you can take the ocp. ...Read more

I am 18 with acne scars & brown complexion
please prescribe generic medicines and creams for spotless and fair skin?
Benzoyl peroxide : Bpo is a good place to start--there are many good over the counter preparations that you can leave on overnight and it will control mild acne. If you have moderate to severe acne, you are probably better off seeing a dermatologist and getting on more potent, prescription medication. The "scarring" you have noticed may be post inflammatory pigment, which will fade over time. ...Read more

I have lichen planus for 5 months dr. Meds are no help. All over skin only, are tanning beds useful for itchiy skin in moderation. Uvb didn't help.
No cure: There is no cure, just maintenance for lichen planus. Several dentists work with particular pharmacies to have a custom rinse made up for helping with the problem. Sometimes some meds may have to be administered in severe cases. I would consult your dentist or an oral surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Best non prescription retin a (tretinoin) cream i can buy online for cheap for wrinkles and acne. ive tried some but non work?
For wrinkles...: Before a one spends money on creams, vitamins, or supplements to try to look better, she should see his regular doctor to be sure she is in good health. If she is indeed in great health, then her wrinkles are due to age, sun damage, smoking, or genetics; which means over-the-counter creams will not make a difference. If she has an illness, then getting healthy may improve her appearance. ...Read more
I have acne and blackheads everywhere on my body and I've tried creams and most acne treatments and they don't work. Is there an OTC pill I could take?
No OTC pill: I am going to assume that you have moderate to severe acne on the face and body and will assume you have used as directed topical treatments for at least 6-8 weeks at a time. If that is the case you will need to see a dermatiologist to consider oral medications starting with possibly oral antibiotics in combination with topical adapalene or tretinoin or consider oral isotretinoin treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
