Clean And Clear Face Wash
I'm male.i use clean and clear face wash but when I do not use it pimples attack my face so what should I do now?
Many options: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel or cream is helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin (adapalene) gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics are options also. If acne is more severe, a dermatologist may prescribe Dapsone or Accutane. ...Read more
Hi i recently used clean And clear face wash. It has benzoyl peroxide 10% and turned my face beat red and itchy anyway to sooth this?
Try cool compresses: and ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil). If the itchiness continues, you can try taking an antihistamine (Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (diphenhydramine) or Claritin or Zyrtec or Allegra). If it blisters or continues to be red and itchy, please see your doctor or a dermatologist. Also, be cautious if taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec; they can make you drowsy so you shouldn't drive while on them. ...Read more

What is the best face wash to get rid of black heads. I have them pretty bad . I've tried Noxzema and clean and clear hasn't worked for me.
Pangea Organics: I recommend the discovery kit for oily/blemish skin for only $34 and free shipping until labor day. The high antioxidant content found in these certified organic botanical products (not dangerous chemicals) supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture loss. http://bit.ly/17wwcjw. ...Read more
I've tried everything to clear my skin.I used to have nice skin but recently its gotten bad.Currently im trying a BP gel and a gentle face wash, help?
Tough problem: First you must determine the cause. While BP is effective for most cases of acne, other treatments include salicylic acid or topical/systemic retinoids or topical/systemic antibiotics, or hormone therapy or ipl or pdt to effectively treat the condition. These later interventions must be prescribed by a physician. ...Read more
Maybe: Face washes can help clear acne pimples if they have ingredients such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc., but they can also dry out your skin. I am not familiar with the ingredients of ponds, but i know it used to be used as a cold cream to remove makeup. This would probably be too heavy for skin with acne and would not clear pimples. ...Read more

Hello, I have several scabs all over my face. the worst one is on my chin and looks very ugly. it all started after I invested in a new face wash. how do I sleep up the healing? how long will it take? I have school in 5 days& I want my face to be clear as
Have it checked: It's possible you may have had a local allergic reaction but whenever I hear of sudden outbreak of frequent scabs I think of Impetigo. It's yellow crusted and kinda wet looking. It's due to a germ and will respond quickly to antibiotics. Unusual rashes are best seen by an MD to help determine the cause and the best treatment. For now was skin in sensitive skin mild soap/water. Neosporin to scabs. ...Read more
Im 22 had acne for 8 years now its trying to go away just wont clear all the way up in your opinion what face wash or cream has the best results?
Get real Rx: If over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide has not worked for you, then you need to get with your physician for some prescription-strength treatment -- a topical vitamin a analogue, topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic, or maybe something stronger. If the physician who prescribed your several rx's for nerves cannot help you, please get a consult. Best wishes. ...Read more
