Shampoo That Doesn T Cause Acne
How does accutane prevent acne relapse? I know it dries sebaceous oil so that pores won't be clogged. But after accutane? Doesn't the oil return?
Function of Accutane: Accutane works by decreasing the number of cells in the skin, including the oil glands. That is the reason it decreases the acne as the skin dries up. After stopping Accutane, the skin will return to its old self in 6 months to a year and the oil production should increase also. Hope this helps. ...Read more
I read that accutane can cause hair loss due to vitamin a, but that topical tretinoin cream can cause hair regrowth. How does this make sense?
It doesn't: Because this is not the case, may be with some anecdotal cases, but not the norm or a common effect or side effect, the drug works on the sebaceous glands not the hair follicles. ...Read more
Dandruff: A yeast called malassezia. This fungus is one of the normal microscopic life forms that grow, along with certain bacteria, in your skin's oily secretion (sebum). Creams, foams or lotions containing an antifungal agent, such as ketoconazole (ketozole, extina), often help reduce flare-ups, supporting the idea that this yeast is a contributing factor. But seborrheic dermatitis is not contagious. ...Read more

Is retin a (tretinoin) effective for permantly eliminating pimples and acne? Does it work like accutane, shrinking the oils glands? Or does it just expholiate.
Facewash either drys face giving acne or if it doesn't dry it out, clogs pores giving acne. If i don't wash, feels oily. How do I find right balance?
Dry not the target: Your face should have a certain amount of oil. Drying it out only causes the sebacious glands to start secreting more oil. Proper professional cleansers should help. Visit an esthetician to get proper guidance. Avoid cleansers with any alcohol in them, including astringents. ...Read more
I wear makeup to hide my acne but that causes acne. Any tips? I use something OTC with benzoyl peroxide. I struggle keeping it acne free. Thanks!
See your physician: It's time to move you up to a prescription-strength medicine to supplement the benzoyl peroxide (which was a great start). Your physician can probably clear you with topical clindamycin. Tretinoin or something similar. The oral contraceptive pill (if it's right for you) or spironolactone are also possibilities. Good luck and stay proactive. ...Read more
