How do u get rid of acne on face and chest? I heard that going in the sun can help dry them up and it will make em go away is this true?
Real Rx. Sunlight helps a little but not much, and not by drying. Once it's on the chest, you can't do it on your own, and home remedies and topical benzoyl peroxide probably won't touch it. Your physician can probably clear you in about two weeks with a systemic antibiotic that's right for you, perhaps tetracycline 500 2x/day. If this fails and you're offered isotretinoin, accept it. Edit.
Spironolactone. Adult women with acne respond best to spironolactone. It will take 3 months to see what it will do. Dose varies from 25 to 200 mg daily, usually 100mg. Very safe. Do not use if pregnant or kidney failure. Tell dermatologist all meds & supplements. Sometimes causes minor breast tenderness or intermenstrual spotting. Can be used for years. Avoid taking potassium (kcl) pills.
Acne treatment. Adult acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products or prescription medications including topical cream with or without oral medications.
Acne. Acne is due to over production of sebum and blockage of glands which may secondarily become infected. It is driven by increased androgen hormone production. Since we have no idea of your age and other medical conditions, no relevant response can be offered.

Can be. If you are overweight (BMI over 30), snore loudly, wake up tired, fall asleep easily during the day, have reflux or morning headaches then you could have sleep apnea. Unless you are obese it is less common in your age group - risk is increased after the age of 50.
Various ways. .. Acne is a skin condition characterised by blocked pores (comedones / blackheads) which may become inflammed or infected (pustules / whiteheads). Treatments include facial wash (Benzoyl Peroxide), topical Retinoids or topical antibiotic (Erythromycin, Clindamycin). Infected pustular acne may be treated with oral antibiotic (Tetracycline, Doxycycline). Severe nodular cystic may require oral Retinoid.
Scientific Rx. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. He/she may be able to add a topical antibiotic such as clindamycin, a retinoic acid derivative, a systemic antibiotic, topical sprionolactone or some other rx. All acne is manageable nowadays. Take advantage of what the 21st century offers.

How can I get rid of acne on my face and back? I've visited a few dermatologists, and expensive "skin clinics" but nothing really seems to work.
Acne control. The best solution to control acne is to have a good skin care regimen. Do not I repeat do not touch your face. Get pca products ; gentle exfoliant, acne gel and clearskin and use them every day.
Difficult. Though hard, it is possible if your acne is mild. Decrease dairy and soy intake. Drink plenty of water. Cut down or eliminate suggary foods. You may also want to take a zinc supplement.
You won't. Diet will do little. Drinking more water will do nothing. Zinc does nothing. It is not your fault that you have acne. It is genetics & hormones. Not diet or hygiene. Not because you touched your face. Not hair style. Not due to stress. A dermatologist will help you.
No easy answers. I hope your acne is now under control. Removing the scars -- if that is your wish, and you have a choice -- can't be accomplished except by a specialist dermatologist, who can offer you several options. I'm sorry you got the scars in the first place, and I wish you luck.
Acne scarring. Raised scars may be treated with small injections of intralesional corticosteroids. It is important to treat any active breakouts to avoid further scarring. See a dermatologist.
Subspecialist. A dermatologist or plastic surgeon can make them less visible using a filler, laser, or microsurgery. I'm sorry you ended up with scars because your acne was not treated appropriately in the first place. If you look closely, several hollywood leading men have kept their scars for the "tough guy" look. It's your choice.
