More acne: Clindoxyl gel is a mixture of benzoyle peroxide and clindamycin. These are two very common topical treatments for acne. They work better on the "pimple" type of lesions. Not the best treatment for blackheads. Medicines like retin a (tretinoin) cream are better for blackheads. ...Read more
Help, not remove: Micro needling can help with scars (adding PRP helps even more), fractionated lasers are better, but more expensive. A less invasive (but slower results) process would be laser genesis to the scars. If they are depressed you can use needle subcision or fillers to improve the appearance.

Rx: I'm aggressive and start with topical clindamycin, adding a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads, and offering over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide if it's not. Even in our loony health care system this should be cheap. For tougher cases, don't hesitate if you're offered a systemic antibiotic, and dermatologists have even bigger guns. Glad you're proactive, good luck. ...Read more

Laxatives do not hel: I do not think there is a"best"acne wash for medicine. It varies from person to person which is best for them.

Remember all acne medicine are meant to prevent pimples. They all take several weeks for maximum effectiveness. Good luck! ...Read more

Manage it: You also say you are diagnosed with rosacea. You need to have this treated. Acne comes and goes unexpectedly, and clindamycin plus a topical agent like benzoyl peroxide usually controls but does not cure it. Your weight may also be causing you to have extra androgens. Losing weight / adopting healthy exercise and eating habits is a priority for you now. Best wishes. ...Read more
Does isotrex gel solve acne just like the oral use of isotretinoin tablets solves acne? Or are the effects of the gel milder and does the acne return?

Tretinoin irritates the skin and causes the cells of the skin to grow (divide) and die more rapidly, increasing the turnover of cells. ...Read more
