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

Both good

Acne
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.

Need to figure out WHY it is red first. I recomend seeing a good dermatologist to help figure that out before you waste a lot of money on things that wont work. It could be ameanable to laser treatment is it is vascular in nature, but you may need medicinal intervention.

Red skin in groin, how to cure?

See a doctor

Redness
You might have jock itch which is a fungal infection of the skin in the groin area. Yes, women can get that too. But without examination, it's hard to be certain. So you should see a doctor for proper evaluation and treatment.

Can hot water cause red skin welp?

A burn

Red_skin
Yes. Water can certainly get hot enough to cause a skin burn. The red mark may develop into a blister if the water was hot enough. Kept it covered and clean.
