Levest Pill Acne
What treatment should I take for acnes..... I don't wanna use pills I don't like them what should I do?
Yes: Isotretinoin is believed to be capable of stopping the growth of long bones if the patient has not achieved his/her full height. This is something to consider in prescribing it. Most acne can be managed either with topical benzoyl peroxide alone, or if more severe or on the trunk, adding a second rx such as systemic tetracycline or any of several others that won't stop growth. ...Read more
Maybe.: I'm making some assumptions here - that you're talking about antibiotic (not birth control) pills, and that your acne acts up only around the time of your menstrual cycle. In those cases, some people can keep their acne under control by stopping the antibiotic midcycle; but you should only try it with the knowledge and supervision of your dermatologist. ...Read more
Yes: The herbals and supplements will disappoint you. Your physician has antibiotics for the milder cases and can refer you for isotretinoin; the latter is not cheap, pleasant or risk-free but is very effective. The oral contraceptive pill can end acne if you're a lady who can take it. Spironolactone is the other agent that folks sometimes forget. ...Read more
Yes: Assuming you have good hygeine there are great topicals and regular chemical peels are very helpful. Blue light or blu/red light using ala is also helpful. Worth a try if you don't want peals but it might take the oral medications too if too far along. ...Read more
Topicals: Topical benzoyl peroxide works pretty well, topical retinoic acid derivatives and topical Clindamycin from your physician are pretty good as well. Nobody, especially not the healthtap team, wants to take oral medication or thinks health comes from a pill bottle. But if you have nasty acne & you want real results, we can offer you more than topical stuff. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Acne is a very complex disease and may require a complicated treatment regiment to produce any improvements and may require some time to determine the proper combo atop of treatment modalities. It would be best to meet with a dermatologist to help plan and prescribe a skin care routine with possible oral or topical prescriptions. ...Read more
Acne: Acne is a multivariable skin disorder. There are many antibiotic pills that help it come under control. A vitamin compound called nicomide may be of benefit. Topicals can also be used. If however, you only want one pill, the one that will give you the most predictable results, Accutane is the one. Unfortunately, it is the pill with the most likely to cause unwanted side effects. Ask your md. ...Read more
DependsAnswerDepends: For some people they work and others not at all. If give them a couple of months befor giving up. You must remember the pills alone will never work if you do not have strict hygeine! ...Read more
Treat separately: A host of medications are more or less effective for true migraine, which is brutal and which no one should have to suffer. I start acne treatment with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative, and move to an oral antibiotic only if this fails. Good luck and keep up your proactive approach. ...Read more
In reality: There are no real documented reasons why you can't take these together. Often you will hear doctors report that with any antibiotics you could make birth control pills less effect and use a back up form of birth control. This is really true with rifampin. There is no compelling data for lymecycline and cerelle to not be used together. Best of luck. If worried, review this with your docs ...Read more
Acne: The severity of your acne or hirsutism will determine how long you should remain on treatment. Several months are generally required with continuation for another 3 to 4 months after the acne or hirsutism is controlled. Further treatment with Estelle -35 ED can be initiated if the conditions recur. It is likely that longer treatment will be required for treating the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome. ...Read more
Pills and topicals: The pills should not interfere with your gentle magic facial, but your skin could be more sensitive than usual. Please be careful. ...Read more
Common: It's very common, but not necessarily normal. ...Read more
Which ones?: It's very difficult to answer broad open ended questions. Let's assume that you're referring to prescription acne medications. By definition, all have to effective to be approved by FDA for use in States. There has to be some level of safety too. However, some are safer than others. For instance, isotretinoin is safe for female but poses significant birth defect risk. Over-the-counter non-prescrpt ...Read more
I tried almost all the home remedies, I've tried pills, and some acne washes. Any other ideas I could use for acne?

You have options: Depending on what type of acne you have, there are a variety of medications that can improve acne. Topical products can help as can oral antibiotics. If your acne is hormone related birth control or spironolactone can help. For severe acne, oral Isotretinoin has a strong record of clearing acne. Talk with dermatologist to decide which would work best for you. ...Read more
I'm 17 years and have some acnes on my face, do u recommend taking pills for peeling? And if Yes what is a name of good medicine to take?
Get seen: There's all kinds of disinformation about acne. Ignore all "pop"suggestions and advice. It's unrealted to lifestyle, diet, or hygiene. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in a few weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will. Since you're female, you have options that men don't. Best wishes. ...Read more
