Broke out in facial stress acne. after popping whiteheads cleaned face with 50% rubbing alcohol, now my entire face is red; did I burn my skin?!?!

Broke out in facial stress acne. after popping whiteheads cleaned face with 50% rubbing alcohol, now my entire face is red; did I burn my skin?!?!

No harm done: Next time you suspect something like this will happen, start up with a salicylic acid face wash as tolerated, or topical benzoyl peroxide if you have it. Rubbing alcohol isn't a good idea in this sort of situation -- it hurts your tissue more than it does the bacteria -- soap and water is much better for clearing the debris that gives the bacteria an advantage. Your physician's a resource. ...Read more

My motherinlaw is healing from a coldsore touched my 6wk old babys cheeks after washing her hands.Is my baby safe?I wiped her cheeks with water after?

Probably: Good handwashing often removes clinging germs and viruses. Most everyone eventually gets the cold sore virus. Herpangina is the name of the condition of a first time infection and is associated with fever and painful mouth sores. Usually passes in 5-7 days. Encourage adults with active lesions to avoid direct contact - like kissing in cheeks - during their flare up. Situation sounds low risk. ...Read more

My long distance boyfriend has a cold sore and I'm seeing him this weekend- can I kiss his face and can he kiss my face? Like cheek/forehead not mouth

It depends...: Is the diagnosis certain? Facial herpes can occur, but less common than oral (lips, etc), and it is unusual to have outbreaks in two area, i.e. both cheek and forehead. If he has it and you do not, best to avoid kissing and other direct contact, e.g. no oral sex on you. You could have a blood test. If already positive for HSV1 (as are half of all people), you're immune, can't catch it again. ...Read more

Will my face breakout if i wash it with dove sensitive skin soap bar?

Will my face breakout if i wash it with dove sensitive skin soap bar?

Acne: Dove soap will not make your face break out. If you have the tendency for acne washing with dove will not prevent your face from breaking out. Acne is not due to dirty skin. It is due in part to bacterial inflammation of blocked sebaceous gland ducts. See your doctor or dermatologist to prevent acne so that you are not left with scars. ...Read more

I use chemical sunscreen on my face daily. Should i be concern if my baby touch or brush across my face briefly and puts his hands in his mouth later?

Likely not: I would not be concerned unless you have just applied it to your face and it is still wet. If the babies hands are wet when they touch your face then wash the babies hands before he puts them in his mouth. Well that is probably overkill but if you are concerned then it gives you some peace of mind :) ...Read more

Blackheads all over my face especially my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead  I use a blackhead face scrub in the shower but it doesn't help?

Don't scrub!: Your face isn't a pot - don't scrub it. As to what treatment is best for you, each individual responds differently to different treatments, so there is no one "most effective" treatment. A dermatologist can tailor a treatment based on your skin type and the variety of acne you have. ...Read more

Why do I get little white heads on my chin/ mouth area and my forehead? I'm using erythromycin cream and I use a clarasonic to wash my face

Get a good facial.: A professional facial with extraction of the white heads is the fastest way to get rid of them. Comedogenic oils and pore clogging ingredients commonly found in skin care and cosmetics are major cause of blackheads, whiteheads, and break outs. It's important to make sure your skin care products don't contain comedogenic ingredients. Learn those ingredients to avoid them in the future. ...Read more

My face are now dry and flaky. And it have a dark spot on my chin. So, should I use olay regenerist cream cleanser? I'm scare to use face cleanser.

Regenerist is another option; it's been highly tested so should not cause problems. Use moisturizer with spf afterwards. Have fp or dermatologist check dark spot on chin. ...Read more
