Cystic acne: It sounds like you might have a secondary skin infection in addition to acne on your face, or that your acne has become cystic. This usually requires oral antibiotics in addition to topical acne products, and I recommend that you see a dermatologist or your family physician, who can start you on Rx. ...Read more

Treatable.: Hi,
Oral antibiotics for acne are hit or miss. Please try to prevent any emotional trauma if these pills don't bring you all the way to total satisfaction.

I made a video that may help prevent the emotional impact of this common approach:

I have acne on my cheecks and im 20 . im using benzoylproxide on my acne every night.but it just can heal the acne not stopping them?

Acne: deeper acne that is not opening spontaneously with gentle skin care at home will likely need medical extraction by an experienced acne care specialist. The sooner the impaction of the sebaceous gland is relieved, the faster the inflammation will be relieved and skin will heal. PB will just dry your skin, it will not heal active nodulocystic acne. ...Read more

I am 23 female having severe acne and acne marks from last few years , every night i get a new acne , how should I treat it and get my face spotless ?

A few options: For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone. For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you. ...Read more

I mastubrate daily every night. And I have acne in may face, little bit on my head and back. It is been 4 years since I have acne pimpls.What do I do.?

You're a man now!: Acne comes and goes for all young man and many older men. It's got nothing to do with what you do in private, or what else may happen as you develop further as a man. When it's on the back, benzoyl peroxide won't work too welli start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative, but often its presence on the back suggests one of the systemic antibiotics may be right for you. ...Read more

Iam 16.5 years old boy.I have, NT night fall since 1 month and am not exited for any sex .and look like 13 or14 year boy. Does my height grow.have acne?

Becoming a man: "Night fall" is a term often used by misguided people for the normal process of nocturnal emissions. They're healthy and you should enjoy them. You need to manage you acne with topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated and prescription-strength Rx if not clear. Things sound like they are on course if perhaps later than your peers. Talk with your physician about any changes that concern you. ...Read more

Can the acne on my back be caused by my night sweats?

Can the acne on my back be caused by my night sweats?

No, but...: I am more concerned about why you are having night sweats in the first place; this is something you will want to talk about with your physician. If the acne is in fact miliaria (a different skin disease that may feature little putules), this is caused by dampness, and acne can get slightly worse on such skin. Today's rx's can handle almost all acne -- again, your physician can help. ...Read more

What are some great techniques to clear up acne. I wash my face at night/morning with ivory soap but no results so far ?

Benzoyl peroxide: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel or cream can be quite helpful. An "acne wash" is not needed. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel may be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. It can take 3 weeks to 3 months in order to see improvements. ...Read more

I cannot get rid of the acne on my cheeks. I wash my face every night and morning.

Medications may help: Make sure you're using a face wash with benzoyl peroxide in it. If you start getting irritation on your face from using this then you should switch to something more mild like cetaphil and talk with your doctor as there are other creams and lotions available (i.e. Clindamycin, tretinoin). ...Read more

Can I use rose water after washing face at night time.. I have mild acne & oily skin... Yes or no?

Frequent flier: You've asked over different twenty questions about your acne recently. Rose water isn't your answer. As before, you owe it to yourself to used evidence-based medicine. Your best choice by far is topical benzoyl peroxide. You also need to know that nothing you've done -- including enjoying your body like a normal young man -- is making this happen to you. Be strong. Be smart. Do the right thing. ...Read more

What would you suggest I do about large pores? I have teenage acne, but my skin isn't oily. I use finacea every other night.

Be patient: You are using the right thing for your acne. There are laser treatments which can reduce the pore size but i feel you are too young to do something so drastic. Many times, the pores will decrease in size and action when you get through the hormonal fluctuations of adolescence. ...Read more

I have acne n i use akneroxid gel in the afternoon and sudocream i use in the night before sleep for dark spot from pimple.. is it good???

Not recommended: First line acne treatment for mild to moderate acne would be anything whose active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. A gel works best but can be drying. I would avoid an antiseptic healing cream like Sudocream as this may increase resistance and cause excessive drying of the skin. ...Read more
