What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

Not a good idea.: Several options are available, but none can be done at home. The most effective treatment, in my opinion, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible. Find a dermatologist who has done lots and lots of them; you don't want a beginner doing this procedure. And you don't want to try it at home. ...Read more

Can there be any type of home remedy and or acne treatment that can get rid of pimples overnight?

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 instantly. ...Read more

I have a lot of pimples can you tell me about best home remedy to remove pimples I have tried benzlyl peroxide cream but it has no effect on me?

Get Rx: Benzoyl peroxide is the only over-the-counter remedy that will help much and the "pop" remedies don't work. Your physician may add topical clindamycin, a retinoic acid derivative, or both, and if you are not clear in a month, add a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day. For the strongest stuff, a dermatologist can help. ...Read more

What is the best home remedy for itchy facial pimples? I just started having it when i was 21 until now that I am 23

See a dermatologist: No vitamin or zinc will help your face. There are effective treatments. You may start with benzoyl peroxide- get a generic, not proactiv (expensive!). It may be drying and it can bleach colors out of fabrics: be careful. Acne is not your fault. It is related to genetics, hormones, and sometimes meds. ...Read more

I have very painful pimple on tip of my nose 2 days ago after i steamed my face 10 mins d/t cold. Any home remedy for this? The pain cause me weak

May not be a pimple: Instead of an ordinary pimple there may be more to this. Perhaps you have a cold sore on the tip of your nose or some other problems such as skin cancer brewing. Of course I could not tell you for sure without looking at this. My advice would be to apply heat and if it does not improve in the day seek a physician who can look at it ...Read more

Scientific Rx: You're 21 years old and acne is now a major personal and professional liability. Please get over the idea that "natural is best" for any serious health issue -- it's not. Topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid are your best friends, and your personal physician can offer prescription Rx or topical clindamycin *may be available without a Rx) as required. You owe it to yourself to fix this. ...Read more
