Spironlactone: For adult women the best acne treatment is the anti-androgen spironolactone. Usually 100mg orally. Expect clearing in 3 months. Not if pregnant or in kidney failure. If very severe acne and insufficient response to spironolactone, 5 months of oral isotretinoin, probably at 80mg a day, will rescue you. Not if pregnant. Acne is related to hormones, menstrual cycles, genetics. Not diet or hygiene or ...Read more

I am suffering an acne problem on my buttock area , which i apply Fucidin for several days, i don't have diabetes, hygiene is good, what  is the cause?

Could be many things: An outbreak of acne like rash on the buttocks can happen from a variety of causes. Excessive sweating even with good hygiene can promote bacterial infection and the types of bacteria that can cause this are treated differently. The Fucidin cream you are applying doesn't help adequately and you may need an oral antibiotic. ...Read more

I have cystic acne and on lymecycline antibiotics and Fucidin H topical cream, the cyst aren't going down how do I get rid of them?

Lumps: Hi,
Look for small relative changes. If you do not see any week after week, your treatment is simply not adequate and inform your doctor.

If the lumps don't go down in the coming weeks, feel free to contact me anytime. This condition is never easy and often riddled with failure. Be prepared for this possibility emotionally, but look for those relative changes.

After shaving my beard i always get some red pimples on my neck "submandibular area".My friend advice me to use Fucidin cream.Is it useful for my case?

Maybe not.: Fucidin is for bacterial infection. If you develop (bacterial) folliculitis after shave, Fucidin might help.
But if you have an irritation from razor blade, cortisone cream might do a better job.
Or you may have a condition called pseudofolliculitis(caused by ingrown hair), a chronic stubborn problem, you'd better seek for dermatologist help, it's a little complicated(to treat). ...Read more

Fighting bacteria: Each hair follicle is connected to a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, which keep the skin surface oily and protects the skin.
The importance of adequate face washing: when dead skin clogs up a pore, bacteria grows in the oily skin.
The whiteness of an acne lesion is the pus formed by the dead white cells that fight the acne bacteria. ...Read more

Are there any great natural solutions for acne?

Scientific Rx: Acne is a serious, chronic disease that needs to be managed scientifically until it remits on its own. The stuff that works (benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid derivatives, salicylic acid, prescription antibiotics) all are gifts from mother nature. If you're responsible for a young person's health, you have a duty to provide effective treatment including physician consultation. ...Read more

How to reduce acne?

How to reduce acne?

Start with...: Topical benzoyl peroxide. If this does not clear it, your physician can add topical Clindamycin or another antibiotic; if it's on your trunk, you'll probably need a systemic antibiotic as well, and if it's severe, dermatologists have stuff that's not pleasant and a bit risky but is certain to clear you up. This is the 21st century and you have a right to be acne-free. ...Read more

Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel or cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics like tetracycline can be used. If quite severe, a dermatologist may use Accutane. ...Read more
