Pimple Treatment Naturally
Acne Treatment: Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most effective over-the-counter treatments for acne. It is a disinfectant that can penetrate into the hair follicle, killing the bacteria that cause blemishes. Benzoyl peroxide can, however, dry out the skin. Consumers should therefore start with the lowest dosage possible (2.5 percent) once a day and increase in frequency and concentration only as needed. ...Read more
I am advised to take 20mg combiflam tablets for 10 days along with minoz oz 100mg for pimple treatment. I don't have pain anywhere. Is it ok to continu?
No, better options: No, acnotin or Accutane has been used in the past and has displayed great sucess with cystic acne but is now highly regulated due to side effects including birth defects in children from pregancy and increased tryglycerides. It is still being prescribed but only by registered physicians within certain specialties. Other options such as anitbiotics are much safer. ...Read more
Acne therapy: If your acne doesn't respond to otc treatments, consider seeing a doctor or dermatologist to get a stronger prescription lotion. Tretinoin (avita, retin-a, others), Adapalene (differin) and tazarotene (tazorac, avage) are examples of topical prescription products derived from vitamin a.

I did a pimple treatment which left marks in my face...like its really red all over...i have to attend a wedding in two days...how can i clear my skin?
Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed in two days. ...Read more

Acne treatment no Rx: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products followed by a noncomedogenic moisturizer.

No more pimples, still on accutane, but I have red acne scars on my cheeks and redness uneven skintone. Any treatments i can do ? I have wedding soon
Ease up on RetinA: You state that you are on Accutane but your history states you are on retin a (tretinoin) as well. You may want to ease up on the retin a (tretinoin) as that may be responsible for your redness. Some patients love and swear by relight therapy but the science is lacking. Nor surgical interventions can be done because of the Accutane so cosmetics may be your best option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For severe cases: Accutane is a very strong but very effective drug for acne. It has potential serious side effects and requires close monitoring. That said, i know multiple patients who have had phenomenal improvements with Accutane that say they would do the treatment over. I recommend you see a local dermatologist for a consultation and more information. ...Read more
Is it supposed to get worst before it gets better while on Accutane for acne treatment? If yes why is it?
Acne: With most acne meds, you will get a little worse before it gets better. Along with the pimples on the surface of your skin, there are others developing deeper in your pores. The meds may bring those forward, so you will initially see more pimples, then as they resolve, you will see fewer of them. ...Read more
Yes: and you can easily find them online or on the package insert. Always do that homework before starting any new drug please. ...Read more
Yes but only if . . : Only if you're willing to tolerate side effects and very strict requirements for taking it. Remember that Isotretinoin is associated w/birth defects. That's why you need to promise to use 2 forms of birth control regularly. If you can't, then it's not worth risk of delivering baby w/physical deformities. Discuss your options w/your dermatologist. Only you can decide if it's appropriate for u. ...Read more
Whit is the cumulative dose should I take from net look or Accutane and concentration 40mg for 6months is enough for completely treatment of acne??
Treat until better: Accutane is extraordinarily potent and is a very potent teratogen (causes birth defects) even after you are not taking it!! Try NOT to get pregnant for at least several months after you stop taking it because it is stored in your body fat. Try using it for as short a time as you can. ...Read more
