What pimple treatment won't irritate my exzema?

What pimple treatment won't irritate my exzema?

Acne Treatment: Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most effective over-the-counter treatments for acne. It is a disinfectant that can penetrate into the hair follicle, killing the bacteria that cause blemishes. Benzoyl peroxide can, however, dry out the skin. Consumers should therefore start with the lowest dosage possible (2.5 percent) once a day and increase in frequency and concentration only as needed. ...Read more

Acne and pimple treatment?

Acne therapy: If your acne doesn't respond to otc treatments, consider seeing a doctor or dermatologist to get a stronger prescription lotion.

Is acnotin good to use for pimple treatment?

No, better options: No, acnotin or Accutane has been used in the past and has displayed great sucess with cystic acne but is now highly regulated due to side effects including birth defects in children from pregancy and increased tryglycerides.

I am advised to take 20mg combiflam tablets for 10 days along with minoz oz 100mg for pimple treatment. I don't have pain anywhere. Is it ok to continu?

Acne????: Neither acetominophen nor Ibuprofen will help acne. I do not know "minoz oz". If this is minocycloine, then it is useful for acne as a small dose for many months. For adult women who are not pregnant, the most effective treatment is spironolactone.. ...Read more

I did a pimple treatment which left marks in my face...like its really red all over...i have to attend a wedding in two days...how can i clear my skin?

Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed in two days. ...Read more

I completed a Accutane treatment of 6 months about 8 months ago and im getting whiteheads do i need a second Accutane treatment to clear my skin..?

Go to your dermatolo: You do not indicate the dose of isotretinoin (Accutane). Higher doses yield more cures. Acanya is an expensive brand of tretinoin. You may need tretinoin or oral minocycline or another dose of isotretinoin. See your dermatologist. ...Read more

Acne treatment no Rx: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products followed by a noncomedogenic moisturizer. Since you have already completed a course of Accutane, a last resort for treatment of acne, re-consultation with your prescribing physician would be beneficial. ...Read more

No more pimples, still on accutane, but I have red acne scars on my cheeks and redness uneven skintone. Any treatments i can do ? I have wedding soon

No more pimples, still on accutane, but I have red acne scars on my cheeks and redness uneven skintone. Any treatments i can do ? I have wedding soon

Ease up on RetinA: You state that you are on Accutane but your history states you are on retin a (tretinoin) as well. You may want to ease up on the retin a (tretinoin) as that may be responsible for your redness. Some patients love and swear by relight therapy but the science is lacking. Nor surgical interventions can be done because of the Accutane so cosmetics may be your best option. ...Read more

Is Accutane recommended for acne treatment?

For severe cases: Accutane is a very strong but very effective drug for acne. It has potential serious side effects and requires close monitoring. That said, i know multiple patients who have had phenomenal improvements with Accutane that say they would do the treatment over.

Is it supposed to get worst before it gets better while on Accutane for acne treatment? If yes why is it?

Is it supposed to get worst before it gets better while on Accutane for acne treatment? If yes why is it?

Acne: With most acne meds, you will get a little worse before it gets better. Along with the pimples on the surface of your skin, there are others developing deeper in your pores. The meds may bring those forward, so you will initially see more pimples, then as they resolve, you will see fewer of them. ...Read more

Do you thik Accutane is a good treatment for the acne in the chest and the back ?

Do you thik Accutane is a good treatment for the acne in the chest and the back ?

Yes but only if . . : Only if you're willing to tolerate side effects and very strict requirements for taking it. Remember that Isotretinoin is associated w/birth defects. That's why you need to promise to use 2 forms of birth control regularly. If you can't, then it's not worth risk of delivering baby w/physical deformities. Discuss your options w/your dermatologist. Only you can decide if it's appropriate for u. ...Read more

Whit is the cumulative dose should I take from net look or Accutane and concentration 40mg for 6months is enough for completely treatment of acne??

Whit is the  cumulative dose should I take from net look or Accutane and concentration 40mg for 6months is enough for completely treatment of acne??

Treat until better: Accutane is extraordinarily potent and is a very potent teratogen (causes birth defects) even after you are not taking it!! Try NOT to get pregnant for at least several months after you stop taking it because it is stored in your body fat. Try using it for as short a time as you can. ...Read more
