I have a lot of pimples can you tell me about best home remedy to remove pimples I have tried benzlyl peroxide cream but it has no effect on me?

Get Rx: Benzoyl peroxide is the only over-the-counter remedy that will help much and the "pop" remedies don't work.

Can you tell me how to cure pimples using home remedy in few days?

Not possible: Acne is a skin eruption triggered by a complex interplay between hormones, skin type and skin care practices. It will not clear up in a few days regardless of treatment type.

See a dermatologist: No vitamin or zinc will help your face. There are effective treatments. You may start with benzoyl peroxide- get a generic, not proactiv (expensive!). It may be drying and it can bleach colors out of fabrics: be careful. Acne is not your fault. It is related to genetics, hormones, and sometimes meds. ...Read more

May not be a pimple: Instead of an ordinary pimple there may be more to this. Perhaps you have a cold sore on the tip of your nose or some other problems such as skin cancer brewing. Of course I could not tell you for sure without looking at this. My advice would be to apply heat and if it does not improve in the day seek a physician who can look at it ...Read more

Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed instantly. ...Read more
