Dermatologist Treatment For Acne

I am 25 years old male, and my dermatologist recommends taking Accutane for acne treatment. Should I ask my wife to contracept?
I have acne and I went to my dermatologist for treatment. I'm using it daily, but my face is starting to burn when I apply the products. Solution?
Acne medications: If after a certain amount of time, the face burns after application of acne medications, it may be either an allergic or an irritant reaction to the medication. An allergic reaction means you can't use the medicine anymore as the reaction will only get stronger. An irritant reaction may be due to overdrying and may just require less frequent application of the med after stopping it for a week. ...Read more
My 13 yr old daughter has acne (mild to severe) and I was wondering if there is any treatment, with a dermatologist, that can get rid of all her acne?
No: Treating acne is an ongoing thing. There is no magic cure but there are many treatments, starting with good washing of the area with a medicated soap. Benzoyl peroxide treatment can be applied twice - three times daily to start. Consult with your pediatrician or dermatologist, there are many more available treatments. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is derma roller commonly offered as a procedure in dermatologists' offices--or is it an "at home" treatment? For scar tissues and/or acne scars
Broke out with cystic acne a month & a half ago. Haven't been to dermatologist due to trying to conceive afraid treatments will interfere. What to do?
Went 2 dermatologist. Doing treatments of blue/light 4 acne. Dr gave me cetaphil-oil-control-foam-wash 4 acne it's making face red&hot, acne wore. Why?
That foaming wash: Contains a little acid so can be a little irritating if you have sensitive skin. I am sure you were also given prescription medications as blue light alone is not enough. Perhaps the prescriptions are causing irritation. Talk with your dermatologist ...Read more
Hello. I am 26 and worried about my back which is covered with pimples and scars. I followed a treatment from a dermatologist as well but in vain.
Get seen again: You are past due for treatment with isotretinoin. It will not touch the scars but will prevent new ones. Get another opinion. If you are not having regular periods, work on this with your physician. If you cannot take isotretinoin, the oral contraceptive pill and maybe sourinolactone are considerations. ...Read more

Improve not remove: Many options exist for cosmetic improvement and include anti-inflammatories, peels, exfoliation, lasers, resurfacing, bleaching, excision, grafting, fillers, and much more, scars vary in their severity and so do the treatments.

Have to be on Accutane for one month maybe 2 months depending on my dermatologist, does it cure acne scars?
Sorry, no.: Accurate reduces acne outbreaks that can lead to new scars, but does not remove or reduce old scars. Scars (caused by any process or injury) are permanent and require other surgical intervention for improvement, such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing. However, Accutane can lead to increased risks of scarring with surgeries performed within a year or longer after its use, so beware! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How can I remove acne scars fast. I have only five days for job interview. Also suggest home remedy because my dermatologist failed to cure these scar?
I hope it worked: Acne is a grave personal and professional liability and I'm really sorry that yours was neglected during your teenaged years. You need to forget about a home remedy or even a quick fix from a dermatologist. Managing severe acne scars is a long process and the results are never perfect -- for example, Chris Pine (photo) has had a fairly good result but still usually hides his with a short beard. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How to clear acne scaring? It's the brown level with skin scaring I don't want to go to the dermatologist
Forgive my frankness: If you're got scarring, your acne has already been neglected for too long. Acne that scars won't respond to non-prescription medications. You're now a grown woman. Your acne scars and persistent disease are a sign of poor self-care that will be noted as job interviews. Get with your personal physician and/or a skin specialist. ...Read more
My acne problem isn't going. I've been to a dermatologist and tried his courses but no change in acne. Is there any kind of food I should and shouldn'?
Can't afford dermatologist and since my complete hysterectomy I now get acne all over before my skin was perfect what do I do?
My dermatologist prescribed fluconazole for my persisting acne problem. Should it be taken before or after food? I forgot the instructions he'd given.
Confusing: Fluconazole is used for yeast, not acne. Usually 1 or 2 doses. Your best treatment is SPIRONOLACTONE, usually 100mg daily as anti androgen. Usually acne is gone after 3 months, continue to keep it away. Not if pregnant or in kidney failure. If severe cystic acne unresponsive to spironolactone, isotretinoin orally for 5 months will rescue you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
