I have acne n I use akneroxid gel in the afternoon and sudocream I use in the night before sleep for dark spot from pimple. Is it good???

Not recommended: First line acne treatment for mild to moderate acne would be anything whose active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. A gel works best but can be drying. I would avoid an antiseptic healing cream like Sudocream as this may increase resistance and cause excessive drying of the skin. ...Read more

I was prescribed Doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules and Levocetrizine dihydrochloride tablet, along with gel for acne and dark spots, just wanted to know if that will help?

I was prescribed Doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules and Levocetrizine dihydrochloride tablet, along with gel for acne and dark spots, just wanted to know if that will help?

Doxycycline can: Doxycycline, taken orally, is very effective for certain types of acne (inflammatory). Usually topical antibiotics would be tried first. The lactobacillus is likely to help offset potential side effects of doxycycline. The levocitirizine is an allergy medication very much like Zyrtec (cetirizine) but with less potential to cause drowsiness; I don't think that prescription is related to your acne. ...Read more

Actually it may.: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is improved with topicals that turnover the top layer of skin like all retinoids do. I like to combine Retinoic acid with lightening agents to get the most power and improvement. Beta hydroxy acid peels help a lot too. ...Read more

I have acne and red spot on my face...I am going to use benzac (benzoyl peroxide) AC gel for treating it. So it is good choice or not? Plz suggest

A good first try: Benzac ac (http://www. Benzac. Com. Au/why-it-works) is basically benzoyl peroxide with an added combo of absorbing beads and glycerin all act to dry up a lot of the oils that can clog up skin pores, causing an acne lesion. Without seeing you I cannot say if it will work but it may be a good start. See a dermatologist if this doesn't help. ...Read more

Acne & pimples, due to which dark spots. Nothing help. Plz help.
