Extremely oily face/shoulders/back. No matter how much i wash. I scratch an itch and stuff gets under my nails. It is gross. What to do? Using panoxyl 4 but have tried other products. Embarrassed.
I used panoxyl on my shoulder and broke out with these pimple-like bumps in one spot on my shoulder. They haven't gone away. What should I do?
Recently started using panoxyl 10% wash and clindamycin lotion making acne worse. What could be wrong?
Stop the wash: I suspect the wash is causing too much irritation to your skin. If you can get a wash with 5 % that might work if you find that the wash was giving you some benefit. ...Read more
What is better and . Best for clear complexion bar soaps like cetaphil, neutrogena, purpose, panoxyl soap bar etc. Or liquid cleanser, or creamy cleanser?
Depends on skin: One skin cleanser may work better for you than another depending on your skin, whether it is dry or oily, light or dark complexion, etc. I usually recommend a neutral or hypoallergenic formula, avoiding perfumes and other additives. Sometimes i suggest a pure soap such as dove, but it may be too drying for already dry skin. You should try different brands and formulas to see what works for you. ...Read more
Best acne fighting combination? Please in need of help for red spots too I have panoxyl 4 cream wash and clyndamicin antibiotic anythin else i cud use

Follow up at your doctor in 6 weeks if your face is still not clear of bumps. The acne scars will fade over time once new lesions stop occurring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Am I dying?
We all are: A 3-word question with no details... well, life is short on Earth, regardless of whether a person lives 3 days, 3000 days, or 30,000 days. It is not length of one's life that matters, but the quality of the life lived. The goal is not to live a long life, but to live a good life. Even if a person makes it all the way to age 82, that's only 30,000 days. ...Read more
