Hi doctors. What are difference between medicated toner and clindamycin solution? Which is more effective for pimples, redness & skin discoloration?

Both good: Medicated toners are usually salicylic acid over-the-counter while Clindamycin is a prescribed antibiotic. They can be used together, or you can use Clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide. If the acne's on your trunk, your physician may add a systemic antibiotic for a short time. Glad your acne is being managed. ...Read more

I have really bad acne and no time or money to see a dermatologist, I have blackheads on my nose, cystic pimples, and red irritated skin what can I do?

No time?: Any licensed physician can handle all but the most severe cases of acne. I trust you're already using topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day; your personal physician can write for the oral contraceptive pill (if right for you), topical / systemic antibiotics, topical spironolacton, or retinoic acid derivatives. College / free health clinic can help. No time for any health care? Big change is needed. ...Read more

All of a sudden all over my face pimples start to grow with redness and getting severe, why and what's the remedy?I wash with fresh skin months back :'(

Manage it: I'm going to assume this is acne and not folliculitis involving your beard. Don't ask "why". Acne is a chronic, non-hygiene-related, non-lifestyle-related disease that cannot be cured but can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Best wishes. ...Read more
