Should I use depilatory if I have acne?

Should I use depilatory if I have acne?

Might irritate skin: Acne lesions are often inflammed and what you put on your skin can cause more irritation. Depilatory agents can often be irritating. However, shaving over acne can also cause problems. So it might be a good idea to use the depilatory on a small patch of skin to see how you respond. If there are no problems then you'd could try it on the other areas. Good luck and be careful. ...Read more

Should I use an astrigent for my face if I have acne?

Should I use an astrigent for my face if I have acne?

Maybe: If you have oily skin, an astringent might be helpful in controlling the secretion of sebum (oil). While this will not control your acne, it will help the other medications prescribed by your dermatologist in controlling it. If you don't have oily skin, an astringent will just dry you out. ...Read more

I have really dry and flaky skin. I use a moisturer everyday after a shower but it's not making any difference. What should try?

Try Body Wash : Use a body wash (dove, olay, etc.) in the shower instead of soap. Do not make the water too hot. Try different moisturizers, i.e., those with ammonium lactate (amlactin over the counter, lachydrin (lactic acid) prescription - same thing). If affordable, whole house humidifier. ...Read more

I got prescribed doxycycline and retin a tretinoin if my skin gets dried out do I moisturize it or leave it alone to dry? And if so what moisturizer

RetinA can be drying: It is the retin a (tretinoin) which is drying. You want to be sure you are on a cream or micro-gel, but not the gel formulation. Stop it for a few days, apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream twice a day, then resume the retinoid, starting at every other day. ...Read more
