How do i know if i have an allergic reaction or a chemical burn? I used a new face wash and my face is itching, burning and I have small zits showing
Can be difficult : Telling the difference between a chemical burn and local allergic reaction can sometimes be tricky, but in general an allergic reaction would rapidly lessen with Benedryl and cool compresses while a burn would be more long lasting and eventually turn into peeling or flaking. Either way, avoiding the wash that caused it would be wise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Of course not: Please forgive my frankness. Somebody made this up as a cruel prank. If your acne hasn't responded to topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated after two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will clear you. I'm really sorry that you had to ask -- acne is a grave personal and professional liability that you need to manage until it remits on your own. ...Read more
I just recently got Mupirocin prescribed for an chemical burn i had on my acne ive tried using so much and nothing has helped will this ointment work?
Listen: Acne is ALWAYS managable if the physician knows what he/she is doing. You're an adult and acne is a major personal and professional liability. If topical benzoyl peroxide wasn't enough (and I trust you're using this and/or retinoic acid), systemic tetracycline, topical clindamycin, systemic spironolactone, the oral contraceptive pill and/or "Accutane" are all options. ...Read more
Some HC cream helps: Usually, when a person gets over-irritated skin or overly-dry skin after using acne medications, she can decrease or stop the acne medication (if they are over-the-counter, or if her doctor says that is ok to do), and then try some hydrocortisone cream (HC cream) on the irritated areas for a few days. Avoiding too much sun exposure on irritated skin is also helpful. ...Read more

Hi, about 2 months ago i tried lemon juice to reduce some of my acne and it left me with a chemical burn. What could have gone wrong?
Common side effect: Both benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin are peeling agents. They come in different concentrations (%) and different bases (cream, lotion, gel). If it burns ask your doc to lower the strength and you spread out the time between applications to every other day or every third day. Good luck. ...Read more
I used an acne treatment with 2% benzoyl peroxide and now my face is burning and extremely dry, what can I do?
What's a good over-the-counter face wash, mask, or home remedy for extreme blackheads on the nose and chin area? I have oily skin.
Blackheads: Mix one fourth cup of hot water and one teaspoonful of Epsom salt with 4 drops of iodine. Mix well and allow to cool. Dip a cotton ball and apply to the blackhead and surrounding areas. When mixture is dry gently remove with a clean cloth. This is one of the good and effective home remedies for blackheads. ...Read more
I have acne & can I use an Ayurvedic soap free acne face wash which contains neem & turmeric as main ingredients and it has also no harmful chemicals?
This sounds okay: Dr. Baker is one of my favorite teammates here and he's almost certainly right about when it's okay to use ayurvedic remedies as your major treatment and when they're only adjuncts. Retinoic acid is a mainstay of acne treatment and as a vitamin, it may also appeal to you. Enjoying your body is not a health problem and not the cause of your acne. Embrace who you are and be healthy. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
