Does soy isoflavone supplements help with acne?

Does soy isoflavone supplements help with acne?

Adjunct only: Soy is promoted by the "natural healing" community as a source of estrogens; ironically, "greens" publish disinformation about estrogens in the environment causing us terrible harm. I hope you'll see through the huckstering and get your acne treated scientifically. If benzoyl peroxide / retinoic acid haven't cleared you in a few weeks, you'll need your physician's prescription-strength choices. ...Read more

Does green barley help to minimize acne?

Does green barley help to minimize acne?

Adjunct only: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease. It's manageable -- if topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared the lesions in two weeks, a physician should be seen for prescription-strength rx. If you are responsible for the health of a teen and you are trying to force a "natural remedy" instead of getting real treatment, you're doing junior a terrible disservice. Do the right thing. ...Read more

Good'n natural zinc for acne does it really work...

Good'n natural zinc for acne does it really work...

Adjunct only: It will probably not clear you and i'd be pleasantly surprised if it even helped. Zinc is likely to upset your stomach, and if you take a lot, you can make yourself copper deficient. How about using an evidence based regimen instead? Benzoyl peroxide is not pleasant but it's your first choice; if you're not clear in two weeks, get with your primary care physician. ...Read more

Sea salt to help acne? Does this work?

Sea salt to help acne? Does this work?

I bet it won't: "sea salt" that you buy is essentially just overpriced salt. Nobody can or should test the hundreds of "pop" acne remedies. What I do know is that topical benzoyl peroxide is the best non-prescription rx, and that any competent primary care physician can clear up all but the worst acne. If you're responsible for a teen's health, it's your duty to get him/her seen. ...Read more

Does exercising (gym, yoga etc.) help avoid remission of adult acne? Has milk to do with acne, i've read it contains oxytocin? I am allergic to milk.

Does exercising (gym, yoga etc.) help avoid remission of adult acne? Has milk to do with acne, i've read it contains oxytocin? I am allergic to milk.

Wrong approach: Ignore everything you read online about acne. With your hair loss, you may want to get with your physician about a hormonal problem. Otherwise, there's no figuring out why some folks have acne into later life. I was able to stop using Rx when I was around 50. Kee it under control with topical benzoyl peroxide or more if is needed -- your physician can help. Best wishes and keep exercising. ...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
