See a dermatologist.: Antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide have yielded consistently excellent results for more than 50 years.

Comparing face wash, cream cleanser, or cold creams, which won't harm my facial skin down the road?

None of them...: ...Will "harm" your skin, unless you're allergic to one, or grossly misuse them. Despite all the advertising hype, there is very little difference between the hundreds of facial cleansers offered for sale. Use one that you like, and that doesn't cost a fortune. ...Read more

Get real Rx: If over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide has not worked for you, then you need to get with your physician for some prescription-strength treatment -- a topical vitamin a analogue, topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic, or maybe something stronger.

Scientific Rx: You're a 19 year old man and you need your acne addressed scientifically. Start with benzoyl peroxide, and make an appointment with your physician to decide what to add.

I am using nizral cream for ringworm on face but whenever I wash the cream the ringworm becomes red and there is a burning sensation & still no effect?

Answer: Stinging and burning at the application site is a side effect in up to 10% of people using Nizoral (ketoconazole) cream, and the face is particularly susceptible to this side effect, as the skin is more sensitive than other areas of the body. Would consider using another type of antifungal medication, or obtaining a second opinion on whether or not the rash is actually ringworm. ...Read more

I'm 21yrs old hv too oily skin n acne pimples al ovr my face. It gets worst in summer, please suggst me any gud cream n face wash plz.....

Scientific Rx: All acne can be managed nowadays. If you're female, the oral contraceptive pill could clear you if you can use it. Benzoyl peroxide is a good start, if you are not good in two weeks your physician may add a retinoic acid derivative and/or topical Clindamycin or something similar. If on the face only, a systemic antibiotic will probably not be necessary but could be in reserve. Good luck. ...Read more

I keep getting pimples& bumps on my face although its not oily skin &I am using oil free wash and non comedogenic creams, what's reason &what to do?

Acne: Don't try to figure out why you have acne. You almost never find out. If your periods are okay, it is probably not "hormones." The stuff you are using for it is basically worthless. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid don't help, your physician can add spironolactone or try the oral contraceptive pill. Best wishes. ...Read more
