Can you please advise me for the best face cream/gel to remove acne?

Serious Rx: If topical benzoyl peroxide (with clindamycin if available) hasn't resulted in a clear improvement in two weeks, or fails to clear you in a month, get with your personal physician for perscription Rx.

I have acne spot (black spot) on my face, but no acne for a few months. Please recommend the best cream or medicine that will totally resolve the problem?

Acne scar: Unfortunately there's no magic cream to completely and consistently remove acne scars. Sometimes laser treatment by dermatologists can help with the acne scaring. Usually they offer free consultations (the laser treatments aren't covered by insurance, however), and they can tell you if you're acne spot would be helped by laser. ...Read more

I have been using Betasol face cream for 2 weeks now my face has pimples like rush and they burning and my skin is becoming dry and red and itchy?

I have been using Betasol face cream for 2 weeks now my face has pimples like rush and they burning and my skin is becoming dry and red and itchy?

Reaction to cream: I am assuming your Betasol contains clobetasol propionate, which is a potent corticosteroid with anti inflammatory properties usually used to treat eczema and psoriasis, but you may be sensitive to that or a different ingredient in the cream.

Sir I need fairness so which cream to use for face? Before I was using penderm+ I got good results but now I have got acne what to do?

Some options. . .: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral Accutane. ...Read more

Hi I use a lot of cream and face wash but my acne is not going please tell me some thing?

See a dermatologist.: Antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide have yielded consistently excellent results for more than 50 years. A dermatologist will give you prescriptions for the combination that works best for you. Don't waste your money on otc creams & soaps; they don't work, and will only delay resolution and increase your risk of permanent scarring. ...Read more

Unfamiliar: I am not familiar with either product but perhaps I and/or the other HealthTap folks can be as useful as a word-of-mouth. Your best friends are topical benzoyl peroxide and retinoic acid. Apply without any special maneuvers. If you are not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician. ...Read more

I am suffering severe acne. I used BP cream and after 20 days, there is 40% improvement but my face turns whiter than my body. What will I do? Tan?

Yes: Yes one option to deal w/different skin tone is tanning. We recommend tanning lotions rather than UV beds. Once skin tone even, switch to different form of acne treatment - discuss options w/your Family Doc or Dermatologist. Check http://www. Webmd.

I'm a young & I get acne still I have tryed meds & creams from a dr. But nothing is working I really don't want to damage my face any ideas what to try?

A few options: For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone. For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you. ...Read more

Is it safe to use two acne controlling face creams at once?

Is it safe to use two acne controlling face creams at once?

Get a real Rx: You deserve something stronger if you're at this point. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, I add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more
