Good evening... Dok can I know what should I do about my face having many pimples acne and my breaking out because of this.

Good evening... Dok can I know what should I do about my face having many pimples acne and my breaking out because of this.

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) 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 can help. ...Read more

What to do if I have back acne and I am afraid to take of my shirt?

What to do if I have back acne and I am afraid to take of my shirt?

I'm sorry: All acne can be managed and yours should have been. There's still time. You can't do it on your own, and home remedies and topical benzoyl peroxide probably won't touch it. Your physician can probably clear you in about two weeks with a systemic antibiotic that's right for you, perhaps tetracycline 500 2x/day. If this fails and you're offered isotretinoin, accept it. ...Read more

Just brushed my teeth and I also found blood! I am afraid of the dentist so I hide this from my mom... What should I do? Is this bad? Thanks.

Just brushed my teeth and I also found blood! I am afraid of the dentist so I hide this from my mom... What should I do? Is this bad? Thanks.

Yes: But it's easily and painlessly fixed. Please let your Mom low so that she can make an appointment with your Dentist to determine what's causing the bleeding (probably gum infection that will only get worse with neglect) discuss the appropriate treatment plan with you and your Mom, and discuss your fears and how they can be addressed. This is not a hard fix if you address it now. ...Read more
