Hi, what is the best food to cure acne and hair loss ? Thanks

Ignore "pop" advice: For your acne, topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid. If you're not clear in two weeks, phone your physician. All guys lose the hair on our temples at age 20 or so. If you're naturally hairy-chested you're likely to have more hair loss; ask your physicain about meds. Other hair loss calls for a thyroid blood test and check for telogen effluvium etc. ...Read more

What are the best foods for acne?

What are the best foods for acne?

Foods and acne: It's better to ask what foods are best to avoid for acne. These include foods with a high glycemic index (think processed carbs like white flour and white sugar) and dairy (a higher association with skim milk). Some believe gluten and processed vegetable oils can also make it worse. I recommend filling your diet with a variety of nutrients from plants, high quality fats, and fermented foods. ...Read more

Whats the best way to cure acne and acne marks?

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

Which home remedies are considered the best to cure acne in a couple of days?

Which home remedies are considered the best to cure acne in a couple of days?

There aren't any: The over-the-counter product that works best is benzoyl peroxide. None of the home remedies you'll find online (lemon juice, sleeping with your face smeared with honey) will work, and i suspect some of them are cruel pranks on folks with an already-cruel disease. And no rx of any kind words very fast. Please get with a scientific physician. He/she can help. ...Read more

What is the best way to cure body acne and red marks?

Serious Rx: You need a physician. Home remedies are only adjuncts for the management of acne. This is a chronic, non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related disease that's manageable by today's medications, usually cheaply and easily. Delaying treatment is a mistake. ...Read more

I would like to know best home remedies to cure acne and blackheads?

I would like to know best home remedies to cure acne and blackheads?

Get a real Rx: Acne isn't curable by any means; it remits only with age and this is unpredictable. It is a chronic, non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related disease that is a major personal and professional liability, and it deserves evidence-based treatment from a competent physician. If you are refusing to provide this for a teen for whom you are responsible, you are making a terrible mistake. ...Read more

What is the best natural cure for acne?

Nothing that works: This is the 21st century and you have a right to remedies that are scientific and evidence-based, not sold by sweet-talkers. Retinoic acid and Clindamycin are both products from nature, as are the systemic antibiotics you may be offered or (if you are a "she") the hormones in the oral contraceptive pill. Don't let your love of nature's beauty prevent you from using rx that actually works. Cheers. ...Read more

Please suggest what food is best to eat to get rid of acne?

Real Rx: Diet has little to do with acne; i was surprised by the studies too. If topical benzoyl peroxide has failed, your physician has several options, one of which will work. Today all acne can be managed and especially in the case of a teen, responsible parents will do everything they can to get effective rx. ...Read more

Can any doc tell me what's the best way to cure/reduce acne?

Can any doc tell me what's the best way to cure/reduce acne?

Not curable: Acne is not related to lifestyle or hygiene and only marginally to diet. You can't cure it, but it will eventually remit on its own. In the meantime, you owe it to yourself and your family to manage it. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get iwth your personal physician. Ignore all the 'pop' wisdom. Stay on top of this, for your own sake. Best wishes. ...Read more

Doc, what are the best way to cure acne/ pimples? is there a medicine to take?

Yes: You can get acne at any age. I was able to stop using meds when I was 50. Topical benzoyl peroxide is your best friend, or topical retinoic acid. This will usually keep an older guy clear. If you're not better in a few weeks, your physician can add something that will work. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have acne for almost 3 years now in my face and I have a oily skin which sometimes becomes sticky. What would be the best cure to get rid of this?

I have acne for almost 3 years now in my face and I have a oily skin which sometimes becomes sticky. What would be the best cure to get rid of this?

Scientific Rx: Being a teen is tough enough without acne, and i'm sorry you went through 3 years. I start with topical Clindamycin with either benzoyl peroxide or (if there are blackheads) a retinoic acid derivative. If results are not good in a month, add a systemic antibiotic that's right for you; a dermatologist has a less-pleasant rx that can abolish the oil and eliminate the acne. You deserve to look good. ...Read more

What is the best natural cure of red skin and acne?

Adjuncts only: Acne is a serious, chronic, incurable disease that is a major personal and professional liability. It is always manageable by evidence-based medicine until it self-cures, but the 50% of patients who are not cleared by topical benzoyl peroxide need prescription-strength medication. Don't neglect junior's basic health needs by refusing to get 21st century treatment for his/her acne. ...Read more
