Can I use ketoconazole cream on my face for folliculitis?

Can I use ketoconazole cream on my face for folliculitis?

Can, but not helpful: Folliculitis is a result of bacterial overgrowth/infections of your hair follicles...Typically just annoying rather than dangerous. It is basically a small zit. So, topical or oral acne medications can help. Ketoconazole is an antifungal cream (good for ringworms, jock-itch, athlete foot etc.) and will not do anything to the bacteria above. It won't do you harm, but won't do any good. Good luck. ...Read more

Ve been using desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) diaper rash cream on my face for my acne. Will the zinc help my skin?

Zinc: Zinc helps repair damaged tissue and heal wounds. There are some articles out there that suggest a zinc deficiency may contribute to acne issues. This of course is referring to dietary zinc deficiency. Zinc oxide topically is often used in sunscreens for its protective effect from the sun's harmful rays.I can't speak specifically about the use of Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) for acne - but if it helps you then use it. ...Read more

Is using cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream for pimples on shoulders and neck a bad idea?

Is using cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream for pimples on shoulders and neck a bad idea?

Cortisone for acne: It's ok to use occasionally, but don't start using it regularly. Cortisone is a topical steroid cream and over time it will worsen acne, thin the skin and cause other problems. It's great at getting inflammation under control quickly, but over the long term it is more detrimental than beneficial. Save it for emergencies, like the big zit on the end of your nose that appears before a big event. ...Read more

I was prescribed triamcinolone 0.1% cream for my face rash i noticed that i no longer have pimples since i started using the cream is that normal?

The cream that was: prescribed for you is a steroid cream. This isn't one of the typical acne treatments, so it may be coincidence, but it also may either be that it helped with the inflammatory part of your acne, or it may be that your "pimples" were not acne, but were a contact or seborrheic dermatitis. ...Read more
