How effective is neostrata glycolic acid face wash (18%) for grade 2 acne scars? I underwent 30% salicylic acid peel thrice. Not much use . So if the face wash is effective then Please suggest a regimen too.
Forget this stuff: Nothing you can do on your own is going to touch the acne scars. I'm sorry your acne wasn't treated as it should have been, but you do have the option of getting seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who may offer laser work, filler, or microsurgery. Best wishes. ...Read more

Multiple Purposes: Alum is regularly employed as an astringent to shrink tissues and reduce the discharge of bodily fluids, as a styptic to contract organic tissues and stop or reduce hemorrhage and bleeding, and as an emetic agent to induce vomiting when someone has ingested poison.

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed - close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more
Most likely safe: Meladerm is an over the counter skin lightening agent. It contains no prescription medications. It does have some acids used for chemical peels so be careful not to overuse it. Chemical peels can be very useful for treating many skin conditions. The real question is it effective enought to justify the cost. ...Read more
Not much data: Serrapeptase, serrapeptidase, or serratiopeptidase. It is derived from a microorganism in the intestines of silkworms, serratia e15, and is a proteolytic enzyme. The worms use it to dissolve their cocoon. It has been used for about 25 years in japan, mostly for pain and inflammation. There is very little safety data on it, but there are some reports of lung inflammation, so talk with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not Recommended: Greetings. I would not recommend the use of Halonate on a child if it was not prescribed by a Dermatologist. Because it is categorized as a "super high potency" topical steriod, it can have serious side effects when used incorrectly. High potency creams and ointments can be asorbed easily through the skin and cause malfunction to certain organs. Best regards. ...Read more

Specialist decision: Triesence is an injectable steroid into your eye to treat inflammation when steroid eye drops are not helpful. Use on a child would need to be monitored closely and be administered by an eye specialist with experience using this medication. It is not something I typically see in my practice so I suspect your child has a unique health challenge. Good luck! http://www.drugs.com/triesence.html ...Read more

No one knows: There haven't been any long term studies into the possible damage done by e-cigarettes. The general consensus by the medical community is, if you don't smoke, don't start "vaping".
