Skin: Could it be allergic, infectious? If it's not pimples, I don't have enough to go on to help. Rashes are difficult, without seeing them. For oily skin, a mild sensitive skin soap, washing several times a day, should help.

I have purple bump that appears to be infected. Is there a home remedy to help the pimple come to a head?

Help for bump: Using a warm compress for 15-20 min several times a day might help it come to a head. You can take an anti inflammatory such as Motrin OTC as well which may help alleviate some of the pain/swelling. If it gets worse, see a doctor since you may need antibiotic or for it to be drained. Good luck!

I am having scalp folliculitis. My pimple on the head has lessen. I am having small white paches. What is the remedy for the hair to grow back?

If there is NO: Scarring at the site, you can try rogaine (minoxidil). Lumigan grows hair quite well too; however, lumigan/latisse is a crazy expensive way unless this is a very small spot. There are some other oral meds too out there, just ask your doc. Good luck!

Acne Marks: If you have the money, consider laser resurfacing with the fractionated c02 laser. Before laser treatment you can try retin a (tretinoin) cream 0.1% which is a prescription topical medication but this can take a few months.

My 12 year old has pimples on forehead that get pus. She is using Proactiv but they do not seem to get better. Is there any other remedy? Thanks!

Many OTC & scripts: It seems she some inflammatory acne with closed comedones. Otc such as clearasil or any of the benzoyl peroxide containing topicals maybe of benefit. Do not scrub the skin too hard. If not adequate, consult your doc/dermatologist for an evaluation--they can select a medication better suited for her skin i.e. Oily vs dry etc...Good luck.

Acne treatment no Rx: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products followed by a noncomedogenic moisturizer. Since you have already completed a course of Accutane, a last resort for treatment of acne, re-consultation with your prescribing physician would be beneficial.

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.
