Does Biocoten Cream Works For Pimples
Hello sir this uday sir I have pimples and black spot's on my face I'm using clinxa gel how it works shell I use that cream are else other. ..
I usually apply uniflex-n cream (betamethasone 0.1%, neomycin 0.5%) to prevent pimple from growing bigger at my face. It works. Is it actually safe?
No: This is not useful for acne. Neomycin is of no value for any use on any skin problem. Betamethasone is a potent steroid which should not be used on the face. It increases risk for glaucoma and cataracts. Repeated use on the face, especially young women, may lead to a condition called "perioral dermatitis". When this occurs it seems to get better when Betamethasone is applied, only to rebound when. ...Read more
Very bad idea: This is an anti-inflammatory that will just give the bacteria a chance to get further entrenched. Acne can be managed by inexpensive, mainstream medications in almost all cases. If topical benzoyl peroide and/or topical retinoic acid hasn't given you a good result in two weeks, or you have it bad or on your trunk, systemic treatment with an antibiotic for a few months. Isotretinoin for hard cases. ...Read more
Retinoids and Benz p: Hi, the best daily creams for prevention of acne are topical retinoids, like adaplene or retin-A, both available by prescription.

Pimples: Before you use the cream you should go to the nearest Emergency facility where they will decide the best creams for you! Unlikely that they will refer you to a skin specialist but that might happen. ...Read more
Horrible choice: This is the powerful glucocorticoid betamethasone. It will suppress the inflammation for a moment, while allowing the bacteria to overgrow, inviting a serious infection, causing hyperplasia of the acne-producing glands, and risking atrophy of the area. Plus, you are using a prescription med inappropriately. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide & phone your physician. ...Read more
None: See a dermatologist. There are various treatments. Usually 3 months is needed for result. Treatment is not the same for every case. Expensive light/ laser treatments are faster but you will still need long-term management. Probably you will benefit from adapalene or tretinoin. They are prescriptions and are tricky to use, so you need expert guidance. ...Read more

Systemic Rx: Acne on a man's trunk seldom responds just to topical treatment. Your physician may offer benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin, and/or a retinoic acid derivative, but you will probably also need a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day or even Accutane prescribed by a dermatologist. This is the 21st century and all acne is manageable. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it okay to message a whitehead prone skin on daily basis? If so then what kind of cream or lotion should be used for the purpose?
Treat your acne: If you have "whitehead-prone skin", you have acne. This is a chronic, serious, non-lifestyle-related disease that must be managed until it self-cures. Topical benzoyl peroxide is your best friend; alternatives include saliclic acid washes and topical retinoic acid. These are not pleasant but they will probably keep your illness at bay. If not, get with your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not the best idea: Beclomin contains a potent steroid, which can be dangerous to use on the face. It also contains and anti fungal medication, which is definitely not necessary in acne. The antibiotic in the cream is neomycin (also found in neosporin). There are better topical and oral antibiotics available for acne treatment. ...Read more
Bad choice: This is ketoconazole for fungal infections. It's not appropriate for acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Acne can't be cured but will eventually remit on its own. Until then, you must manage it as a chronic illness. ...Read more

VERY bad: This will relieve inflammation but also invite the bacteria that cause the pimples to spread deeper into the tissues. You are asking for an intractable deep-tissue bacterial infection.
