What are the best products for acne prone dry skin with redness?

What are the best products for acne prone dry skin with redness?

Creams, not gels: The treatment would depend on the severity of the acne. Gels are more drying than creams, and more likely to cause irritation. The otc benzoyl peroxide preps tend to have alcohol, and can irritate. A prescription, water based benzoyl peroxide would be less drying. Klaron (sodium sulfacetamide) lotion, or Azelex cream can calm the pimples, with minimal drying. An oral antibiotic may also be necessary. ...Read more

I have a pimples and their spots on my face which cream is best to remove this plz suggest i have a oily skin?

Wash or cream: I would suggest trying a wash and/or cream with benzoyl peroxide as it is easy (at least here) to obtain and tends to work fairly well. If not, salicylic acid works as well but not quite as well for more significant acne. If these don't work, I would suggest a visit with your doctor for prescription options such as a topical retinoid . Good luck! ...Read more

I am using momate cream for acne and I have oily skin is this cream ok ?

No.: If you mean mometasone, that's a topical corticosteroid. At best it will not help; at worst it will make your acne worse. Try benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid or some combination of the two; but if you have oily skin i suspect you will need an oral medication, which will need to be prescribed by a dermatologist. ...Read more

What's the suitable sun cream?I'm 21 years old boy.Have a oily skin.Gonna work outside whole day.Some has high SPF & some has low? What's the differnt

Higher SPF is better: The higher the spf the better coverage you have to keep the skin safe from uv damage. Usually spf 45 or higher is recommended if you are to be outside all day in the sun. Also you want to re-apply it at least 2-3 times a day as sweat, getting dirty and washing the skin will remove the cream protectant. ...Read more

Im 21yrs old hv too oily skin n acne pimples al ovr my face. It gets worst in summer, please suggst me any gud cream n face wash plz.....

Scientific Rx: All acne can be managed nowadays. If you're female, the oral contraceptive pill could clear you if you can use it. Benzoyl peroxide is a good start, if you are not good in two weeks your physician may add a retinoic acid derivative and/or topical Clindamycin or something similar. If on the face only, a systemic antibiotic will probably not be necessary but could be in reserve. Good luck. ...Read more

What % of benzol peryoxide should be used for treating acne n scars and should it be used in cream or in lotion base for oily skin?

Varies: Different people can tolerate different strengths of benzoyl peroxide on their skin. Some people are allergic and cannot tolerate it at all. Most people can tolerate 2.5% to 3%.

Consult a dermatologist who will work with you to devise a safe and effective regimen personalized for your skin. ...Read more
