Non-comedogenic: I am glad to hear that you understand that despite acne or oil-prone skin, it is very important to moisturize daily. The key to a good moisturizer is to ensure it is non-comedogenic or non-pimple forming. Cetaphil, cerave, neutrogena and aveeno (oatmeal) all make great moisturizers that fall into this category. ...Read more

A variety of skin care regimens ranging from gentle cleansers with appropriate moisturizers and exfoliation with the possible prescription of oral or topical retinoids may be a good beginning.

How often should I moisturise per day?
And do lotions and creams have side effects on our health when applyed daily over a long period of time?
Moisturizing advice: The frequency of moisturizing really depends on an individual's personal needs and environment.

Avoiding fragrance body products, staying well hydrated, and wearing loose natural fiber clothing will likely reduce overall need. ...Read more

Skin very sensitive to touch leading to acne without pus instantly spreading all over the face. I have been prescribed calak lotion. Should I apply ?
Hi doctors. Applying clindamycin solution then aha lotion then kojic acid cream for night is good for the face? Is there other regimen for this?
I began applying Clindamycin 1% top lotion 2 days ago on back & face. Now my vagina is itching terribly. Could the med be the cause? No issues before.
Yeast infection?: Your symptoms suggest yeast infection, and sometimes yeast problems are triggered by antibiotics. However, probably not this time: it's unlikely enough clindamycin is absorbed through the skin; and 2 days is too soon. Best see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or try an OTC yeast treatment (look for active ingredient ening in "azole") , but for sure see doc if it doesn't help in a few days. ...Read more

Sunblock moisturizer: Many people use over-the-counter moisturizers that contain sunscreen. Avoiding exposure to the sun will lessen the damage from uv rays, and let skin lighten up. However, one should take extra vitamin d to make up for not getting vitamin d from the sun. Many brands of such lotions are in the stores, so one can try 2-3 brands to see which he likes the most. ...Read more
