Some help: Regular use of antibacterial soap helps dry skin & kill off some bacteria residing there. Loofah or scrub brush to help remove dead skin. Sunshine (it's 24f here today) exposure helps some. Astringent ("witch hazel" etc.) can dry & kill bacteria as well. If these don't improve it, will need to see dermatologist for meds. ...Read more

Reason for pimples on forehead?

Pimples on forehead: Forehead is a common area for acne breakouts. Also, if one uses an oily leave-in conditioner, the oils track down from the scalp and block up pores, which can lead to acne. Folliculitis, inflammation of hair follicles due to a yeast called pityrosporum is also a possibility. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

I have acne problem on face and back.. Kindly sugest some remedies for the same. Thank you.

Failing after a month, consider accutane. Good luck. ...Read more

Im having acne scar and acne on my face.Can i go to a family physician for help to totally get rid of my acne scar totally?

One thing at a time!: Acne first needs to be assessed and treated so that it is under control. Secondly, once it has been under control and is no longer active then you can seek treatment for the residual acne scars. Treatment may help with the scars and can possibly help make them less obvious, but nothing can get rid of them totally. I would start by seeing a board certified dermatologist. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Polypharmacy: I wish everybody was as reluctant to take medication as you are, but often we do need it. Today people can expect to live far longer, healthier lives than at any time in human history. This is due both to public health measures (hygiene, sanitation, immunization) and medication. It's the norm for a vigorous young man like yourself to have this medication history ; it won't ruin you. Best wishes. ...Read more
