Acne therapy: If your acne doesn't respond to otc treatments, consider seeing a doctor or dermatologist to get a stronger prescription lotion. Tretinoin (avita, retin-a, others), Adapalene (differin) and tazarotene (tazorac, avage) are examples of topical prescription products derived from vitamin a. They work by promoting cell turnover and preventing plugging . You may also need oral antibiotics like doryx (doxycycline). ...Read more
Rx: Benzoyl peroxide over the counter is cheap and works pretty well; i add topical clindmycin next because it's cheap and usually works great. If there's a lot of blackheads, the more pricey retinoic acid derivatives can come 3rd; failing this, a systemic antibiotic or even a dermatologist's big guns. The oral contraceptive pill can end acne in a woman who can and wants to take it. ...Read more
Pangea organics: I recommend the discovery kit for oily skin for only $34 and free shipping until labor day. The high antioxidant content found in these certified organic botanical products (not dangerous chemicals) supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture loss. http://bit.ly/146axow. ...Read more
Natural?: Herbs and other supplements are an interesting field and are helpful adjuncts to mainstream evidence-based medicine. But none will treat acne as effectively as what your physician has.

Try OTC first: Try over the counter medications first. Salicylic acid is the main ingredient in most anti-acne medications and can be used daily on affected areas. If this does not work, the next step would be benzoyl peroxide wash. Just make sure to look at the ingredients label on products at the store. If your acne is more severe or does not improve, consider a trip to your doctor for stronger medication. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What do you suggest if i couldn't control my pimple and acne is there is any natural treatment for this?
Scientific Rx: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related illness that can keep you from getting the job you want. You do yourself a disservice if you insist on a "natural" / "herbal" / "holistic" / "pop" remedy. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add prescription-strength Rx. ...Read more

Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed instantly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Acne: During puberty, there is an increase in sebum production in the skin. Sebum and skin debris clog pores and the blockage results in inflammation. Gently cleaning the surface of the skin and applying acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide or prescription clindamycin help reduce the bacteria and clean up to the top layer of the skin allowing the pimples/comedones to clear over time. ...Read more
