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

Acne (Definition)

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions. It affects about 80% of adolescents. Acne starts as a blockage of the sebaceous glands followed by inflammation. It occurs in areas where there are lots of sebaceous glands, such as the face back and chest. The hallmarks of the condition are blackheads, whiteheads (closed comedones), papules, pustules, cysts, nodules, and sometimes scarring.

Will drinking more water help clear acne and red pimples on face?

Will drinking more  water  help clear acne and red pimples on face?

No: Please forgive my frankness. Over-the-counter preparations do not work well either. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If needed after a few weeks, consider adding an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline / Minocycline as suitable for the individual. Dermatologists have the big guns -- accutane, lasers. A clear face is your right. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been using Betasol face cream for 2 weeks now my face has pimples like rush and they burning and my skin is becoming dry and red and itchy?

I have been using Betasol face cream for 2 weeks now  my face has pimples like rush and they burning and my skin is becoming dry and red and itchy?

Reaction to cream: I am assuming your Betasol contains clobetasol propionate, which is a potent corticosteroid with anti inflammatory properties usually used to treat eczema and psoriasis, but you may be sensitive to that or a different ingredient in the cream. Speak with your doctor who Rx this. Also: Warning about toxic face creams in Cape Town | Health24 www.health24.com/.../Warning-about-toxic-face-creams-in-Cape-Town-20150923 ...Read more

I used pimple cream in my face and i tink i've an allergic reaction - it's totally red, burnt n itchy now. I've taken zyrtec (cetirizine). Is it enuf?

Not enough: Various medicated creams that are used for acne can cause local reactions. You should stop the cream, which usually helps. Zyrtec (cetirizine) or other antihistamines are usually insufficient to resolve the issue. In most cases a steroid cream would be necessary. If prescribed by a physician, go back and discuss alternatives. If it is otc, better see a dermatologist. ...Read more
