What is the best drugstore anti-acne wash/medication (otc)?

What is the best drugstore anti-acne wash/medication (otc)?

Get an Rx instead: Over-the-counter preparations do not work well. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If needed after a few weeks, consider adding an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline / Minocycline as suitable for the individual. Dermatologists have the big guns -- accutane, lasers. Freedom from acne should be a person's right. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the beat solution for severe back, chest, and facial acne (w&b heads). Body washes, o.T. C medications etc. Note: salyitic acid makes it worse.

What is the beat solution for severe back, chest, and facial acne (w&b heads). Body washes, o.T. C medications etc. Note: salyitic acid makes it worse.

Prescription Rx: Acne on the trunk usually doesn't clear with any topical medication. You characterize it as severe, and your personal physician may either try a systemic antibiotic plus perhaps a topical retinoic acid derivative, or refer you for Isotretinoin treatment. The latter is not for the faint-hearted but is remarkably effective. ...Read more

Agree to get along: Options: (1) defer to her temperature preferences; (2) take turns determining the temperature on a given day; (3) compromise somewhere in the middle. Whatever you do, don't let the temperature of the room interfere with your enjoyment of your relationship and what you're doing together, which is far more important. ...Read more

I have been using the acne medication, neutrogena oil-free acne wash for maybe 3 or stop using the acne wash?

Can you clarify?: This is very weak stuff and if you're still having acne, move to something stronger. Salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and/or retinoic acid are your best friends. If they don't clear you in a few weeks, or if you have severe acne or it's on your trunk, your physician can add something stronger that will work. Best wishes. ...Read more

Could nausea be caused by an increase in Nature-Thyroid medication? Other symptoms include bloating, constipation/diarrhea, loss of appetite, dizzines

Sure!: Never talk non-prescription thyroid meds. Get checked to see exactly how much you need and so take only as much as necessary. The prescription form of thyroid replacement is probably cheaper than the over the counter form. The FDA does not monitor over the counter meds very well, who know what you are doing to yourself! See a doc. Well worth it! ...Read more

In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
