I have been using melacare since 2 months but when I stop using it within 2days small acne occur all over my face how can I stop using melacare?

Melacare: Melacare is sunsensitive. If you use it apply it at night, but make sure you wash it off in the morning. It is also very drying so you may want to spply a moisturizer.

How to get rid of small acnes on fore head?

How to get rid of small acnes on fore head?

Easy Rx: There's a few home remedies such as vinegar and tea-tree oil but i'd urge you to go directly to the mainstream stuff. If over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide doesn't do the trick, a physician's office visit is in order. If it's relatively mild disease and confined to your face, adding topical Clindamycin might be your best option; your physician may suggest others.

Can small small acne marks on face get away without laser?

Can small small acne marks on face get away without laser?

Yes: Most marks resulting from acne lesions are due to excess pigment in the skin (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). This will resolve on its own, eventually. However, it can take months. Prescription bleaching creams or chemical peels are great ways to speed this process up. See a qualified physician to discuss your needs, as you may be more prone to develop complications with such treatments.

Does zithrox 500mg eliminate cosmetic acne? I applied compact and suffering from small acne all over my face please help

Does zithrox 500mg eliminate cosmetic acne? I applied compact and suffering from small acne all over my face please help

Stop the cosmetics: Some cosmetics are so called "comedogenic" or acne-causing, because they can clog up the pores/hair follicles resulting the acne. Antibiotic such as zithromax may help if it is severe, but the best treatment is stopping that specific cosmetic product. I would say that your acne should be better in about 2 wks after stopping it--no need to add chemicals into your body. Consult doc. Good luck.

Due to acne on my face, I have many small pore left by them. Is there any medicine to diminish the pores?

Tretinoin: I find tretinoin (retin-a and others) to be helpful for scaring and reducing pore size. Similar topicals like Adapalene and tazarotene may have similar benefits.

Change soap: You might want to use less soap or change soaps, which can dry out the skin. Also, you might want to dry a different lotion, one with as few perfumes as possible.

Hey I have back acne not to big but small I am very upset about it and on face to what is happening with me I need proper answer plz?

Manage it, Anne: Don't seek the cause. Acne's basically unrelated to lifestyle, hygiene, or diet. Topical retinoic acid or benzoyl peroxide are your best friends right now; start up and call your physician because he/she will need to add prescription-strength medication to clear you if it's on your trunk. The oral contraceptive pill, spironolactone, and/or an antibiotic may be in your future. Best wishes.

Dermotalogist prescribed me ziana gel for acne however she told me to use a very small amount for the entire face (size of a chocolate chip) why?

That's what you need: Because that's the amount you need to use daily and if you use more than that you will run out of the gel much faster and will need a refill. That's why you use small amount.

Dermotalogist prescribed me ziana gel for acne but told me to use a small amount (size of a chocolate chip) for my entire face but why is that? Help!

Can be irritating: Ziana has a chemical called tretinoin in it which is a derivative of vitamin a. If used too liberally, it can cause irritation. Therefore a pea size (or chocolate chip size) amount is all you need. Also do not go out in the sum with the gel on. For this reason, I have my patients use it before bedtime and wash it off in the morning.

Acne: Getting infected that is why you are feeling pain. You need to see your doctor for antibiotic prescriptions and some anti-acne creams and wash. Do not squeeze your pimples to avoid infection to the brain or mortality.

I'm a little overweight (like 11lbs) and don't have acne on my face. But I have pcos (small). Why is it so?

PCOS assoc. With DM: Suggest study: https://www. Healthtap. Com/#user_questions/230703, get a scale with 0.1 lb readout, weigh every am after arising & commonde, write wt. Down & review what eaten the previous day. This way you can track, experiment & see what works vs. What does not. Central visceral fat typically most metabolically active but not always obvious yet strongly associated with dm, pcos, cv ds, htn, etc.

I have a small patch of bumpy skin on my face. The bumps are not red, nor do they itch or hurt. Is this just dry skin? Or maybe acne?

I have a small patch of bumpy skin on my face. The bumps are not red, nor do they itch or hurt. Is this just dry skin? Or maybe acne?

Facial lesions: Bumps on the face could be multiple things. Acne will turn red eventually. Eczema (associated with dry skin) can result in bumps that may or may not itch. A fungal infection would gradually spread and may not itch. If the bumps have a small central pit it could be a benign infection called Molluscum that resolves over time. Using steroids like hydrocortisone will worsen a fungal infection.

A few options: For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone. For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you.

Solution of dark black pimples or acnes. I am 20 years old and facing acne problem since 16. It makes a small hole on my face everytime I removes it.

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'.
