If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in a few weeks, your physician can add spironolactone, the oral contraceptive pill, or an antibiotic. Time fades pigmented lesions; a depigmenting agent may help or may simply cause more of a mess. ...Read more

What are the home remedies for pimples and pimple black spots?

Get real Rx: Being a young man is hard enough without pimples and even harder if somebody has told you "home remedies / natural" is better. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't done the job, your physician can write for a retinoic acid derivative (great if there's lot of blackheads) &/or topical clindamycin; you're likely eventually to need a systemic antibiotic & if severe, consider accutane. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you get rid of ak skin growths and bumps on your face and also skin tags. Is there a home remedy?

Not really.: Ak stands for "actinic keratosis" - they are small crusty bumps caused by chronic sun damage. Dermatologists usually freeze them with liquid nitrogen; for severe cases a strong cream containing 5fu or Imiquimod is used. Skin tags can be clipped off, or if they are large enough, you can tie a thread around each one to cut off blood supply. But most people (wisely, i think) let their doctor do this. ...Read more
