Acne: The medication you use contains antibiotics that treat bacteria. With using that cream your body can now develop over growth of yeast as in pityrospoum folliculitis. You may have to be treated with ketoconazole or diflucan. The other possibility is that you have developed bacterial resistance and you now need an oral antibiotic like solodyn or doryx. ...Read more

Stop this cream!!!: Penderm plus is clobetasol mixed with antibiotics. This is not a rational mix. The antibiotics are useless for application to any skin condition. Clobetasol is a superpotent steroid. Used on the face you may see reduced inflamation at first, then a rebound causing a rash like acne especially around the mouth. You must stop using clobetasol on your face. It may cause thinning skin, cacaracts, gla. ...Read more

Benzoyl peroxide : Bpo is a good place to start--there are many good over the counter preparations that you can leave on overnight and it will control mild acne. If you have moderate to severe acne, you are probably better off seeing a dermatologist and getting on more potent, prescription medication. The "scarring" you have noticed may be post inflammatory pigment, which will fade over time. ...Read more

Sunblock moisturizer: Dark tan is a natural color. Many people use over-the-counter moisturizers that contain sunscreen. Avoiding exposure to the sun will let skin lighten up. A person should take extra vitamin d to make up for not getting vitamin d from the sun. Although having tanned skin from sun exposure is not a medical illness, there are a few uncommon hormonal medical conditions that can cause skin darkening. ...Read more

Antibiotics: Topical benzoyl peroxide cream 5% overnight. Can bleach pillow cases, use white. Salicylic acid wash lather in wait 5 min rinse. Prescription antibiotics, spironolactone, are safe and effect. Accutane is a very strong drug that can cure acne in 90% of cases but can have some side effects that you need to understand. Only prescribed by dermatologists. Usually take it for 5 months, and stop. ...Read more

Antibiotics: It depends on how bad your acne is. If mild: over the counter products with 5% benzoyl peroxide cream is one of the better ones. Leave on overnight. Can bleach pillow cases, use white one. A salicylic acid wash helps. Lather in , wait 5 min then rinse. Prescription antibiotics i.e. Pills will help acne, they do not cure it. May need to be on them long term. Accutane can cure acne 90% of time. ...Read more
