Medication for cystic acne & saeborrheic dermatitis causing severe migraines.Using isotretinoin, minocycline as HCl BP & desloratadine. Drug reaction?

Stop meds, check eye: If you are having headaches, i would stop the Minocycline and isotretinoin. When given together there is an increased risk of a rare side effect, pseudotumor cerebri. I would have my eyes checked and if no evidence of pseudotumor, restart either the Minocin (minocycline) or isotretinoin, but not both. Migraines can also worsen with Isotretinoin and not affect the eyes, but it definitely needs to be ruled out. ...Read more

My facial redness doesn't seem to improve with rosacea medications. Is light therapy a better rosacea treatment?

I'm using flucort, nizral & aloederm for the leftover darkness of ring worm & eczema. Are they effective?

I'm using flucort, nizral & aloederm for the leftover darkness of ring worm & eczema. Are they effective?

Fading dark spots: If the fungal infection and eczema have resolved and only dark spots are left, the meds you mentioned are not useful in fading dark spots. Lightening of the skin you see with corticosteroid creams is actually a side effect and goes together with atrophy (thinning of the skin), acne, stretch marks. And they don't really fade the dark spots, just damage the skin. A hydroquinone cream can be tried. ...Read more
