Clindoxyl gel for acne and blackheads?

More acne: Clindoxyl gel is a mixture of benzoyle peroxide and clindamycin. These are two very common topical treatments for acne. They work better on the "pimple" type of lesions. Not the best treatment for blackheads. Medicines like retin a (tretinoin) cream are better for blackheads. ...Read more

I have mild acne and have been using tactuo pump For 2 years. I tried my husbands clindoxyl a few week ago and my acne is worst then ever. What to do?

I have mild acne and have been using tactuo pump For 2 years. I tried my husbands clindoxyl a few week ago and my acne is worst then ever. What to do?

Not because of clind: Your med is more effective than your husband's. It is very expensive. You can get similar result at much lower cost by using prescription tretinoin cream. 025% and OTC benzoyl peroxide gel 2 1/2% (or 5%). By far the most effective, easiest, best tolerated therapy for adult women is SPIRONOLACTONE pill by prescription, costing about $6 a month. Usually 50 or 100mg a day. Not if pregnant or kidney f ...Read more

Does contratubex gel good to make acne marks fadeaway?

Does contratubex gel good to make acne marks fadeaway?

Worthless junk: This is a mix of allantoin (the major component of bird droppings), onion, and heparin. Acne marks fade only with time. A depigmenting agent may remove the brown but you're more likely just to make a mess. Nothing you can do on your own helps the scars. I'm sorry you ended up like this. Topical benzoyl peroxide and perhaps a prescription-strength Rx may be your best friends if you've still got it. ...Read more

Hi Doctor, I have bad acnes on my cheeks since last 2 3 months. I am applying aloevra gel over it but NT regularly. Can you suggest something quick?

Hi Doctor, I have bad acnes on my cheeks since last 2 3 months. I am applying aloevra gel over it but NT regularly. Can you suggest something quick?

Various: The cause of your acne should be established by your doctor. If it is straight forward acne then benzyl peroxide with or without an antibiotic cream might work best. Vitamin A creams may be used if safe for you. Antibiotics by mouth have been used but as a last resort. Acne can exist with other diseases so make sure you are assessed. Diet and general skin care as not touching your face may help. ...Read more

Add Retin A (tretinoin): Continue benzoyl peroxide and add a retinoic acid based medicine. These are especially helpful for blackheads. If it is intractable or on your back or chest, you will need to add your physician's prescription-strength medication. ...Read more

If you have acne that's causing scarring, and you're offered isotretinoin, consider taking it -- this can be monotherapy. Best wishes. ...Read more

What type of gel medication should be applied to hormonal-onset acne?

What type of gel medication should be applied to hormonal-onset acne?

Acne: During puberty, there is an increase in sebum production in the skin. Sebum and skin debris clog pores and the blockage results in inflammation. Gently cleaning the surface of the skin and applying acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide or prescription clindamycin help reduce the bacteria and clean up to the top layer of the skin allowing the pimples/comedones to clear over time. ...Read more

Dermotalogist prescribed me ziana gel for acne but told me to use a small amount (size of a chocolate chip) for my entire face but why is that? Help!

Dermotalogist prescribed me ziana gel for acne but told me to use a small amount (size of a chocolate chip) for my entire face but why is that? Help!

Can be irritating: Ziana has a chemical called tretinoin in it which is a derivative of vitamin a. If used too liberally, it can cause irritation. Therefore a pea size (or chocolate chip size) amount is all you need. Also do not go out in the sum with the gel on. For this reason, I have my patients use it before bedtime and wash it off in the morning. ...Read more

Does the scar gel remove scars caused by acne?!

Help, not remove: Micro needling can help with scars (adding PRP helps even more), fractionated lasers are better, but more expensive. A less invasive (but slower results) process would be laser genesis to the scars. If they are depressed you can use needle subcision or fillers to improve the appearance. Improving your acne will prevent further scars, see your doctor for possible treatments antibiotics or creams ...Read more

What's the best anti acne cream or gel for an 21 yo guy?

What's the best anti acne cream or gel for an 21 yo guy?

Rx: I'm aggressive and start with topical clindamycin, adding a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads, and offering over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide if it's not. Even in our loony health care system this should be cheap. For tougher cases, don't hesitate if you're offered a systemic antibiotic, and dermatologists have even bigger guns. Glad you're proactive, good luck. ...Read more
