I have acne on face .I am in worse .Can you tell me treatment ?

Acne: There are hosts of different meds used in acne treatment - oral antibiotics by far are most commonly used. Topical antibiotic and non-antibiotic preps. Have it discussed with your doctor. Also, make sure to minimize or better off to eliminate make up and tampering with your lesions. Don't get frustrated, it may take a while and hard to get rid of them. Time is an important factor as well.

Avoid lotion face: I would advise avoiding johnsons baby lotion on the face. It is not needed. Baby acne is secondary to hormonal changes and usually resolves spontaneously.

I've been put on dianette now for a week to help with my moderate acne on face. The last couple of days it's got so much worse, is this normal?

I've been put on dianette now for a week to help with my moderate acne on face. The last couple of days it's got so much worse, is this normal?

Acne: Dianette is not FDA-approved for use in the United States, due to concerns about hepatotoxicity;so we have no experience with it. It is also banned in France due to high risk and complication profile. its useful for acne as an antiandrogen but the progestin, and antigonadotropin function make it risky. Spironolactone is safer antiandrogen prescription and Myo-inositol is a good natural alternative

Can you tell me about acne or oily face treatments?

Can you tell me about acne or oily face treatments?

Start with these: Topical benzoyl peroxide, a retinoic acid derivative, and/or salicylic acid are the first treatments to try. You can probably get these without a prescription. If you have acne while using one or more of these after 2 weeks, get with your physician

Can overdose usage of morning after pill cause acne on face? I used 2 packages of norlevo in a month.

Yes, but briefly: Any change in hormones may cause an acne flare. Birth controls pills often help acne, but there could be a flare in the beginning. Good news is that the flare should be short lived (and your not pregnant).

Hi,i am 18 y/o boy.have acne problem.i have acne on face and on my back and also.what should i do?

Acne: Depending on the severity of the acne, treatment may change. Make sure you are using good hygiene to start with. Topical preparations such as retinoids and a weak benzyl peroxide solution with an antibiotic may help. There are also choices of oral agents, including antibiotics. See your doctor and all the best.

Serious Rx: if your acne had recently involved your trunk, you will need both topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid and something prescription strength. Spironolactone is an idea since you are a she. There are others. Best wishes.

Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. should i get retested?

Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. should i get retested?

Low risk, no worries: A single pimple probably is just that. Herpes usually causes a cluster of a few blister-like lesions that then become pimple-like or scab over. The blood tests are quite reliable, but miss up to 30% of HSV1 infections, the cause of oral herpes. If your bf continues to have similar pimples in more or less the same spot, he should get it checked out. But for now there's no need for you to be tested.

Get rid of acne on face and back by having a pro pop them?

Get rid of acne on face and back by having a pro pop them?

No!: Popping acne can lead to scarring so that is never recommended. I see from your age that you are an adult female with acne. I typically prescribe spironolactone for this variant of acne and it works to clear it nicely. Also, a medicated wash such as 4, 6 or 8% benzoyl peroxide can be found over the counter and is usually helpful. Careul about bleaching with this product!

I feel like bacteria is causing acne on face and chin what should I take?

Tetracycline: Your question sounds like you'd rather take oral meds than apply topicals like benzoyl peroxide ( which is economical and somewhat effective). Oral tetracyclines are first line therapy for facial inflammatory acne.
