How can I get rid of acne? I have tired every acne cleanser and face cleanser their is and nothing seems to work. If anything it sometimes makes my face worse. All of my acne is on my face, just on my cheeks and chin.
Serious Rx: You need to get with a physician. Cleansers aren't going to help. Monitoring your diet is good advice. I'm going to assume you've tried benzoyl peroxide without being cleared. Chances are that your physician may add a topical antibiotic, topical spironolactone, or (if it's right for you) the oral contraceptive pill, and you can end this suffering, managing it until it self-cures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
