What is the best medicine or treatment for acne or pimples?

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

Why i have persistent acne and pimples on my back? Suggest some medicine or treatment.

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 more

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

What causes acne?
I have an oily skin, and have acne or pimples.Whta are the causes, treatment ?

Many factors: There are several causes for acne: 1.The skin turns over slower, causing pores to plug up, 2. Increased bacteria on the skin . 3. Increased hormones 4. Heredity. I would get evaluated by a dermatologist to determine your best treatment options. It is not caused by dirt or foods in most cases.

Scientific Rx: You're 21 years old and acne is now a major personal and professional liability. Please get over the idea that "natural is best" for any serious health issue -- it's not. Topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid are your best friends, and your personal physician can offer prescription Rx or topical clindamycin *may be available without a Rx) as required. You owe it to yourself to fix this. ...Read more

Can there be any type of home remedy and or acne treatment that can get rid of pimples overnight?

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 more

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
