What can I do about bad acme break outs?

What can I do about bad acme break outs?

Antibiotics from Dr.: For mild acne, any brand of over-the-counter Benzoyl Peroxide Gel or cream is quite helpful. An acne "wash" is not needed. For moderate or "bad" acne, a doctor will likely use oral antibiotics, or an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription gels such as Retin-A or differin can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. A dermatologist can help treat "bad" acne. ...Read more

Why do I break out in bad hives when it rains or when its humid?

Why do I break out in bad hives when it rains or when its humid?

Partial explanation.: Although inhalation of mold spores can rarely cause hives in people who are allergic to them , mold counts are usually elevated after the rain especially when it is followed by hot, windy, and dry days. When the weather is humid, certain molds (ascospores) may release spores but when it is raining all of the spores are washed down. Mold allergy is more likely if you have hay fever or asthma. ...Read more

Is sertraline HCl bad for my health and will it make me break out and age?

Is sertraline HCl bad for my health and will it make me break out and age?

No and no.: Sertraline is not a health problem for 93-97% of people; a rare minority cannot metabolize it quickly and so small amounts may make them feel quite ill temporarily. It does not accelerate aging, nor to my knowledge and experience does it promote acne. However, anxiety can provoke acne. ...Read more
