Acne (Definition)

Get rid of acne in one day, is this possible?

Get rid of acne in one day, is this possible?

No: I'm really sorry your acne has been neglected up until now. You're old enough to write healthtap so you're old enough to take charge. If two weeks on topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day hasn't cleared you, or you have it on your trunk, pick up the phone and call your family physician. Prescription-strength rx's vary and you may try several, but we can control it until it self-cures. ...Read more

Acne scaring are there any options to get rid of acne scaring?

I had cysmatic (not sure how to spell it) acne my whole life and still currently have it.  Just not as bad.  My entire face is pitted.

I talked to a specialist at one point who was very mean

I : I agree that it is important to treat the cystic acne first. Accutane is a good treatment for this purpose. Please read more about Accutane on the link below. After you complete Accutane treatment, you must wait at least six months before treating any scarring that is left over from the acne. At that point, laser resurfacing combined with selective removal of pitted acne scars can help improve acne scarring. I hope that helps! ...Read more

How might one fade out and get rid of acne scar?

Acne Scar Treatment: There is no secret solution to acne scars. You cannot get rid of them 'fast'. Before you even start thinking about acne scar treatment, your acne should be under control and you shouldn't be using Accutane for that control. There is no topical agent that will clear acne scars. If there were, it would be a best seller and in everyone's home. Sorry to disappoint you. ...Read more

Hey hi , I just had one simple question, of late I have had this acne problem and its very difficult to get rid of it do I have any way out to get rid?

Yes: Insist on aggressive management. The "pop" remedies online are cruel pranks. Hygiene, diet, and so forth won't help. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid hasn't cleared you by now, get with your personal physician; you'll need prescription-strength medicine. Acne's unrelated to lifestyle and needs to be managed until it goes away by itself. Best wishes. ...Read more
