How can oxistat lotion be used for severe acne?

How can oxistat lotion be used for severe acne?

Worthless: Oxistat is oxiconzaole. It's a fungicide, and a pretty good one, but it won't touch your acne. Further, your question says to me that you've not taking advantage of medications that do work. If your acne is severe, I'm going to assume that topical benzyl peroxide, retinoic acid and/or salicylic acid have failed. Get with your personal physician. If you're offered isotretinoin, be brave & do it. ...Read more

Tried everthing?: Soaps and lotions won't help, but if this is actually acne, scientific rx will make it vanish.

No: If you've had acne scarring and still have acne, you need to get with your personal physician. Use topical benzoyl peroxide until then. Nothing will touch acne scars short of a physician's intervention with a laser, microsurgery or filler. I'm sorry your acne was neglected, but several hollywood stars have kept their scars for the "tough guy" look. ...Read more

My boyfriend has really sensitive skin and breaks out really bad with acne all over his body, what soap, lotion can help and clear it up?

My boyfriend has really sensitive skin and breaks out really bad with acne all over his body, what soap, lotion can help and clear it up?

Depends: You should try to eliminate what he is "sensitive" to in his environment first. He may be sensitive to laundry detergents, colognes, animal dander, pollens, mold, or even foods. Try changing all soap products to hypoallergenic like neutrogena products for example or ivory snow / dreft laundry detergent and see if this helps. Try acne products, Cortaid (hydrocortisone) and have your boyfriend keep skin clean also. ...Read more

How to tell why i breakout in acne on my face? Is it from my lotion or what i eat or what?

How to tell why i breakout in acne on my face? Is it from my lotion or what i eat or what?

Minor mystery: You'll never figure out why you get worse acne than peers. Ignore anybody who offers to explain -- it's not helpful. Diet is minimally correlated with acne and the link with dairy is actually stronger than chocolate. You can omit your lotion and instead use topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated. It's not fun but it gives you an even chance of clearing your face. If you need more, ask your dr. ...Read more

Should I take erythromycin tablets and lotion or differen for bad acne?

See a dermatologist: Differin (adapalene) or tretinoin will help you. Only about 10% of women your age respond to erythromycin, an antibiotic, which sometimes is difficult to take. Spironolactone is your best bet, with or without certain birth control pills. Some birth control hormones make acne worse because of androgenic (male hormone) effects. If you have severe nodular, cystic acne, isotretinoin will rescue you. ...Read more

Should I still use lotion on my face when I have acne?

Should I still use lotion on my face when I have acne?

Yes: But stick to agents that are labelled 'non comedogenic'. And use as small amount as needed and i would not apply in conjunction with topical acne meds. Some might disagree, but I have found that skin drying causes some patients to cease use of acne meds, so if a little moisture keeps you on track, i think that is a good thing. ...Read more
