I have acne and redness problem on my face, arms n back. Plz suggest something. Hv heard bout Proactiv treatment. Can u please suggest is it effective or nt?

Proactive: Most patients in my practice with acne have tried proactive before they come in to see me. It seems like it tends to work initially, for a few months, then it stops working. Of course, I don't see the patients it keeps working for. It's probably worth a try to start, just be aware you may need to move on to a pharmaceutical grade skin care regimen within a month or two. ...Read more

Keratosis Pilaris: You likely have Keratosis Pilaris, which is keratin build up which covers the fine vellus hair follicles that most people have on their arms, and blocks the hairs from erupting properly. The skin then gets rough or irritated. The simplest way to control it is to use a loofa-type body buff whenever you shower. Don't rub it too hard, but with regular buffing it may improve. ...Read more

I got acne on my forehead and I don't have the money to get laser treatment so is there home remedies that work?

Benzoyl peroxide: Laser treatment is for extreme cases. You owe it to yourself to start using topical benzyl peroxide as you can tolerate. If this hasn't cleared you in two weeks, find a free clinical where a sympathetic physician will give you an inexpensive script for something like tetracycline, which addded to the BP should be sufficient. ...Read more

I often break out in pimples either on back or arms, it can last between 30min to 3hours before clearing. What is the cause and treatment?

Pimples don't: Usually come and go like that. They may be hives, or a reaction to heat or cold with inflammation of the glands in your skin. I would recommend having your doctor check them. If you can't get to the doctor while they are still present, try taking a photo and bring it with you to your appointment. ...Read more

Benzoyl peroxide: This is the best that's over the counter but not nearly so helpful as something as simple as topical Clindamycin with or without BP or a retinoic acid derivative -- i'll use the latter if there are many blackheads.
