Home Remedy For Pimples And Acne On Face
I have acne on my chin & forehead and some acne scars on my cheeks. Cheap acne face wash to get rid of it fast?
Get real Rx: Being a young man is hard enough without pimples and even harder if somebody has told you "home remedies / natural" is better. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't done the job, your physician can write for a retinoic acid derivative (great if there's lot of blackheads) &/or topical clindamycin; you're likely eventually to need a systemic antibiotic & if severe, consider accutane. Good luck. ...Read more
Some help: Regular use of antibacterial soap helps dry skin & kill off some bacteria residing there. Loofah or scrub brush to help remove dead skin. Sunshine (it's 24f here today) exposure helps some. Astringent ("witch hazel" etc.) can dry & kill bacteria as well. If these don't improve it, will need to see dermatologist for meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Any advice about how to treat acne? Whiteheads on checks? Blackheads on nose? Pimples on chin, forehead, and around the eyes? Advice?
Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral ccutane. ...Read more

I have a oily face ..with pimples and acne.. There are even pimple pores on my face.. What should I take for clean and clear skin ?
Not strong enough: It might be good for tea, but for true acne scars, it will unlikely do much for it. Acne scars come in several "flavors." there are ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars and atrophic scars. Acne scars are difficult to treat. There is no "magic bullet." many treatments can "improve" the flatness of the scar, and/or texture of the skin, but it will not make your skin flawless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tons!: There are tons of home remedies out there, the problem is nobody knows if they work because they are not typically studied.Seeking help from a plastic surgeon or dermatologist is best. Products that patients have tried and say "work" include Manuka Honey Masks, and a green tea mask. Both of these are used in skin care products so it makes sense they might help on their own. Ever think about Botox? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Diy is ok if one is good at it, but otherwise may cause more scarring or discoloration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add some prescription-strength Rx. Since you say you have it only on your face, it's likely that adding a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin will be sufficient, but if you need something strong, go for it. ...Read more
