Any advice about how to treat acne? Whiteheads on checks? Blackheads on nose? Pimples on chin, forehead, and around the eyes? Advice?

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 phosphate) 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 might use oral ccutane. ...Read more

No miracles . . .: Go see your Family Doc or Dermatologist. On rare occasions, s/he can lance boil & perhaps inject corticosteroid to minimize inflammation (although this isn't w/o risk). Bottom line, there's no pill to magically make it disappear overnight. Sorry! ...Read more

I have "blackheads" all over my nose, but they aren't. Face is clear, they don't respond to acne meds and they've been there for years. What can it be?

Adenoma sebaceum?: This is one of several entities that mimics what you describe. You may carry a mild allele of a tuberous sclerosis gene; i've seen this miscalled acne. I trust this is not rhinophyma / rosacea. If it bothers you, dermatologists know thousands of otherwise-little-known illnesses and it would be wise to make a visit. ...Read more

See his doctor.: I'd suggest having him see his pediatrician to ensure that this is common acne and not something else. If it is common acne, there are a number of prescription treatments for acne, some antibiotic, some not, and your son's doctor can work with you to decide what's best for your son. ...Read more

Blackheads?: Blackheads are the oxidized oil which is at the surface of your skin. You are not going to get rid of it. Depending on your genetic inheritance you will have a certain density of oil secreting glands on your skin. You can see a cosmetic dermatologist who might give you some good advice on what you can use on your skin to help. Accutane is for severe cystic acne only not blackheads. ...Read more

Typically : Typically for blackheads, a retinoid medication is used (such as differin (adapalene) or retin-a). Read more about acne, including the treatment options and simple tips, on the link below. As for the scars, it depends on the depth and width of the scars.

I have really bad acne and no time or money to see a dermatologist, I have blackheads on my nose, cystic pimples, and red irritated skin what can I do?

No time?: Any licensed physician can handle all but the most severe cases of acne. I trust you're already using topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day; your personal physician can write for the oral contraceptive pill (if right for you), topical / systemic antibiotics, topical spironolacton, or retinoic acid derivatives. College / free health clinic can help. No time for any health care? Big change is needed. ...Read more
