Please tell me will mixing almond oil and neutrogena oil free acne wash redness relief with aloe and chamomile be a bad idea?

Please tell me will mixing almond oil and neutrogena oil free acne wash redness relief with aloe and chamomile be a bad idea?

Get serious: The neutrogena wash is salicylic acid 2% and this has maybe a 50% chance to clear you. The other stuff probably won't touch your acne and will just confuse you if you do get a response. Use the salicylic acid for two weeks -- as much as you can stand. If you're not clear by then, get with your physician. ...Read more

Need prescriptions : Over the counter benzoyl peroxide v can be tried. Your doctor can prescribe topical retinoids derivatives. Topical or oral antibiotics are often effective. In your case your doctor may decide to prescribe Aldactone (spironolactone), a relatively safe oral medication, which should help if "hormonal problem". ...Read more

Can equate triple antibiotic+pain relief ointment help with my acne scab? It's a black scab on my chin and I want to know if the ointment will help.

Scar Prevention: In general, the best way to reduce scarring from acne is to prevent acne lesions from happening in the first place and to avoid sun exposure. Antibiotic ointment will probably not make much difference. Also, some antibiotic ointments can clog pores, depending on what the ingredients are. ...Read more

How can I heal cuts made from picking acne fast?

Leave them alone: Simple avoidance of further picking will allow excoriations to do what they are trying to do: heal. Although i will admit that stopping the practice is not easy. I tell patients to apply plain vaseline when you feel the urge to pick. That way you are still doing something, just not something traumatic to the skin. ...Read more

Will disappoint: "pop" remedies are at best adjuncts to scientific treatment. Tea tree oil may help but has given teenaged boys breasts. If topical benzoyl peroxide has failed, a physician's office visit is in order. Acne is a serious, chronic disease that can do grave physical and emotional damage.
