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'. ...Read more
Would you recommend cetaphil? I have tiny pimples all around face, especially cheeks. Would this help my face? I have sensitive skin.Teenage.Thanks.
Not first choice: Cetaphil is an excellent product and is great for certain conditions such as eczema. If you are choosing one topical to treat your acne, Cetaphil is not the best single first choice. I would try a product with benzoyl peroxide as first line. If that doesn't help or is too strong for your sensitive skin, you should speak to your PCP or dermatologist for a more tailored recommendation. Good luck! ...Read more

May be a skin cyst: A bump on the skin that has whitish stuff inside, but is not pus as in a pimple, is likely a skin cyst that contains skin oils and skin cells.

Other times, a bothersome cyst needs surgical removal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple
Most likely: It's dried blood or a blood blister from repeated bites. It happens all the time with sores on our tongues & cheeks. We bite them once then keep biting them since they protrude slightly. Slow down when eating, be extra careful & it should heal in 2-3 days. If you keep biting it or it stays a problem see your dentist. They may be able to grind a small amount of 1-2 teeth to help you stop biting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
