Best Way To Get Rid Of Pimples Overnight
Rx: This is the 21st century and you shouldn't have to be troubled by these annoying lesions -- being a teen is difficult enough. I start with topical Clindamycin plus either benzoyl peroxide (over-the-counter) or a retinoic acid derivative (if there's lots of blackheads); a systemic antibiotic as appropriate is helpful if this fails and dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more
See Dermatologist: Best to be seen by a well experienced board-certified dermatologist; nothing replaces in person history and physical when it comes to good medical care/recommendations. Best wishes. ...Read more
Do NOT Squeeze: Don't sqeeze the pimple. Often best to draw the pimple with moist warm compresses to get it to come to a "head".

Scar improvement: Is possible, but once a scar is present, it can never be totally removed. Options for treatment depend on the age of the scars, presence of active acne, depth of scars, other skin conditions which may be present, etc. Treatments can include lasers, peels, scar revision, dermabrasion, topical treatments, etc. Seek a facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist with experience in that area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
