Home remedy to remove pimples scars?

Can you tell me how to cure pimples using home remedy in few days?

Can you tell me how to cure pimples using home remedy in few days?

Not possible: Acne is a skin eruption triggered by a complex interplay between hormones, skin type and skin care practices. It will not clear up in a few days regardless of treatment type. (home remedy or prescription) The best chance of clearing comes from developing a skin care routine with the aid of your physician and understanding the effects of the skin treatment options. ...Read more

I have purple bump that appears to be infected. Is there a home remedy to help the pimple come to a head?

Help for bump: using a warm compress for 15-20 min several times a day might help it come to a head. You can take an anti inflammatory such as Motrin OTC as well which may help alleviate some of the pain/swelling. If it gets worse, see a doctor since you may need antibiotic or for it to be drained. Good luck! ...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?

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

How to remove acne.pimples.from my face.i long waited them to disappear naturally but i its taking too much.does it go naturally.Any best home-remedy?

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

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

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

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
