What happens if I use too much clindamycin gel for acne on my face? Will overuse be counteractive? Can I apply moisturizer over it once dried?
Acne: All of the medicines are safe and effective for acne. They work by different mechanisms and I often use all of them together. As topical agents, however they are weaker than internal antibiotics for cystic acne. And are often combined with them. Topical medicines can be irritating to the skin so their use and dose often have to be adjusted by your doctor. ...Read more
I have many pimples and I have tried many gel and facewashes and drink a lot of watet please suggest me?
Scientific Rx: What you are doing won't work. Try over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide for two weeks and if you are not clear, get with your physician for something stronger. All acne can be managed nowadays. It's not your fault and you need to address it as a serious, chronic disease that will eventually remit. ...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

I have acne n I use akneroxid gel in the afternoon and sudocream I use in the night before sleep for dark spot from pimple. Is it good???
Not recommended: First line acne treatment for mild to moderate acne would be anything whose active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. A gel works best but can be drying. I would avoid an antiseptic healing cream like Sudocream as this may increase resistance and cause excessive drying of the skin. ...Read more
Used cace medicines, soaps, gels but still the pimples reappear at the same position as before even after completing the acne course! Help!?
Get real treatment: This is the 21st century and stuff that actually works is available by prescription and cost almost nothing. I start with topical Clindamycin adding a retinoic acid derivative if there's a lot of blackheads. If this doesn't clear it, or its extensive, deep, or on the trunk, find the right systemic antibiotic. The oral contraceptive pill can cure a woman's acne and dermatologists have the big guns. ...Read more
I'm suffering from acne, a dermatoligst give Rx. I'm using Peroduo gel, Lacne 20.after 7days, now im suffering so many pimples. What can I do sir?
Get seen again: You're on topical benzoyl peroxide and two retinoic acid derivatives and two meds whose names I'm not familiar with. You probably need something stronger. Go back and let the dermatologist know. Managing acne is a long-term project since it's not curable. He/she will probably want to see you and add any of the many possible stronger Rx's. If you're offered Isotretinoin (you have scars) consider it ...Read more
Continuing to breakout with deep pimples while using ziana gel. It has been 2 weeks should I switch to something else? If not how long is the ib last
Clindamycin: I'm glad you're trying the basic evidence-based meds but it sounds like they're not enough. They often aren't. Your future may include a systemic antibiotics such as tetracycline 500 2x/day, spironolactone (many doctors don't know this one), or (be brave) isotretinoin. We can clear you -- it's just a matter of finding what and how much you need. ...Read more
Help, I put toothpaste on a pimple and burned my face. The scar has fallen off but it has left a dark scar. Can scar gel help? Also, how long would it take for the scar to fade as I am very worried. Thank you
Acne: It is very hard not to touch/squeeze/abuse pimples. Toothpaste probably didn't make things worse. A pimple is a pocket of inflammation; after it heals it can be darker or sometimes lighter than the surrounding skin. This can take a long time to fade. You should not worry, although you may be self conscious. It will get better. ...Read more
Try something better: There are a variety of medications with the word "clear". Your best over-the-counter treatment is benzoyl peroxide. If this has not cleared you in two weeks, your physician will add a prescription-strength remedy appropriate for you. At your age, acne is a very serious professional liability. You can't remove the scars -- but celebrities such as jet li and tommy lee jones kept their "character.". ...Read more

My dermatologist suggested to use adapalene in the night and phosphate gel in the morning but I got pimple anyways. What am I doing wrong?
Nothing except. ..: Medicine is not magic. Adapaline is a combination of two meds which make the surface cells of the skin where you put it peel off. There are different strengths and vehicles in which it is formulated. Frequently after 6 to 8 weeks of use 80% of people report good to excellent results with those meds. After giving it an appropriate time trial speak to your doc if not satisfied. ...Read more
I am already on acne antibiotic gels, I would like to know of a medicine to use on already started pimples, to reduce them (apart from preventing).
Add another Rx: Many men do not get adequate relief from an antibiotic gel. It may be time to talk with your physician about a systemic antibiotic, or if you're ready for a medication such as Accutane which is extremely effective but rather unpleasant and a bit risky, now's the time to make this known. This is the 21st century and we can clear you up if that's your wish. ...Read more
