What to do if I have dry skin and What to do if I have acne. I was wondering if I could put on johnson's baby lotion before going to bed to moisturise my face?
I used johnsons baby lotion on my 5 week old baby. He developed acne on face. Not sure i its heat rash or acne. How to check and what's the treatment.
Avoid lotion face: I would advise avoiding johnsons baby lotion on the face. It is not needed. Baby acne is secondary to hormonal changes and usually resolves spontaneously. ...Read more
Calamine lotion: Calamine is used to help with itching associated with topical allergies, insect bites and such. The medication is effective for around 3-6 hours after application. It is recommended you remove it after that time to avoid dryness and pluging of your pores if you have tendency to have acne in the area you applied it. ...Read more
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
Acne Scars: Yes. Avoid hydroquinone cremes. Cortisone helps. There are other ingredients to look for over-the-counter that help lighten hyperpigmentation. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (aka bearberry extract), and even vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to look for in over-the-counter lightening creams. ...Read more
See details: It depends on the lotion. The usual skin moisturizers should not cause any issue. ...Read more
I tried everything but i don't know what to do for acne. Can a soap or a lotion help me with this?
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
Get a real Rx: Calamine lotion will disappoint you. Topical benzoyl peroxide is your best over-the-counter remedy. If this does not clear you in two weeks, see your physician. Acne is a serious, non-lifestyle-related, chronic disease that's a major personal and professional liability. Use "pop" remedies only as an adjunct. ...Read more

Will clindamycin lotion help with my acne? And about how long should it take to notice a difference?
May help: Clindamycin, in topical or oral forms, is often used in a treatment regimen for acne. People often see some improvement within a couple of weeks, but often experience a flare after about a month of treatment. After this initial flare, the complexion should remain clear if the treatment is right for you. ...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?
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
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 ?
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
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
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
Gentle: Try cetaphil lotion, tends to be light and effective. ...Read more
