I have adult acne and a white head popped while was hinging my face how should I treat the area and decrease redness ? Also reduce chance of returning

For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone.

If 50mg spironolactone improved adult acne somewhat, would a dosage increase help further? I'm still battling acne on jawline and chin. Depressing!

If 50mg spironolactone improved adult acne somewhat, would a dosage increase help further?  I'm still battling acne on jawline and chin. Depressing!

Spironolactone acne: Spironolactone is a good medication for hormonal acne, which is usually the kind that women past age 35 get. Hormonal acne is more likely to be on the lower face and jawline. Increasing the dose may be helpful. Also, talk to your dermatologist about adding some topicals that may help and avoid dairy products and high sugar carbs which can make acne worse, as can heavy moisturizers. ...Read more

Does Accutane generally help hormonal adult acne along the jawline and chin or is it more effective for adolescent acne?

I suffer from acne in my head skin, what shoud i do?

I suffer from acne in my head skin, what shoud i do?

Scientific Rx: I am going to assume from what you have shared that neither topical Clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide, nor a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day has given you satisfactory results.
