Broke out in facial stress acne. after popping whiteheads cleaned face with 50% rubbing alcohol, now my entire face is red; did I burn my skin?!?!

Broke out in facial stress acne. after popping whiteheads cleaned face with 50% rubbing alcohol, now my entire face is red; did I burn my skin?!?!

No harm done: Next time you suspect something like this will happen, start up with a salicylic acid face wash as tolerated, or topical benzoyl peroxide if you have it. Rubbing alcohol isn't a good idea in this sort of situation -- it hurts your tissue more than it does the bacteria -- soap and water is much better for clearing the debris that gives the bacteria an advantage. Your physician's a resource. ...Read more

Blackheads all over my face especially my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead  I use a blackhead face scrub in the shower but it doesn't help?

Don't scrub!: Your face isn't a pot - don't scrub it. As to what treatment is best for you, each individual responds differently to different treatments, so there is no one "most effective" treatment. A dermatologist can tailor a treatment based on your skin type and the variety of acne you have. ...Read more

Sunburnt on my face will hydocortazone cream help?

Maybe: Be cautious in using any steroid cream on facial skin.The mild .5% (cortisone 5) is as high in strength as i would go and then limit use to a very thin layer 2x daily.This may help calm down the irritation, but can also result in some thinning of the skin and a bleaching of your natural pigment if overused.Consult your doc if needed to personalize your treatment. ...Read more

After applying a scrub of lemon juice and baking soda then bleaching my facial hair, several red ulcer like spots appeared on my face, what do i do?

Stop it: Stop applying lemon juice and soda and bleach to your face! it's creating a chemical reaction which is irritating the sensitive skin on you face. It's called contact (or chemicsl) dermatitis. While it'll heal by itself, it'll take time. Hopefully it'll heal without scarring. Best to avoid all chemicals. See a Dermatologist ...Read more

My face have lot of acne spot,how to remove acne spot in my face and stop acne?

Not curable: You must manage your acne until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add some prescription-strength Rx. Since you say you have it only on your face, it's likely that adding a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin will be sufficient, but if you need something strong, go for it. ...Read more

My skin on my face gets severely dry, red, & flakey, esp on my chin, under my eyebrows, & above upper lip. Any suggestions, besides aveeno (oatmeal) & aquaphor?

Dermatitis: It sounds like you have a condition called seborrhic dermatitis. It is caused by over active skin oil, glands in the areas you describe. Infrequent use of a cortisone cream your doctor can prescribed is the best way to keep it under control. Cortisone should not be used for more than a week or so at a time on the face. Consult with your family doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I confused my triamcinolone cream USP 0.1% for my acne cream. I put quite a bit on my face i washed my face 15mins later. Will it badly effect my face?

No.: Triamcinolone 0.1% cream is a moderate strength steroid cream and if used on the face only one time is nothing to worry about especially since you washed off any residual. Put those two creams in different locations to avid a repeat. ...Read more

My face are now dry and flaky. And it have a dark spot on my chin. So, should I use olay regenerist cream cleanser? I'm scare to use face cleanser.

Regenerist is another option; it's been highly tested so should not cause problems. Use moisturizer with spf afterwards. Have fp or dermatologist check dark spot on chin. ...Read more
