Acne skin solutions

Common Questions and Answers about Acne skin solutions


Avatar f tn Treatment and the length of time it takes usually depends on the severity of the skin lesions. Quick acne solution with limited information at hand may include both self-care and over-the-counter medications. It is important that you clean your skin regularly with a mild, nondrying soap and avoid squeezing or scratching to prevent skin infections and scarring.
Avatar f tn I use Neutrogena soap for acne prone skin (the bar, not the pump). It is the ONLY thing that has worked for me. I even tried Proactive, and it didn't work out for me. My dermatologist recommended it (neutrogena) years ago. I use Oil of Olay for sensitve skin to moisturize. Good luck, I feel for you!
926790 tn?1244063910 I still have the same results as if I never used a product to begin with. I've gotten past my acne stage. The re-occurrence of my acne normally is biased off of what I eat and drink, which I've been closely watching. I have used Pro Active products, as well. I do not enjoy the fact that I need to use nearly six different products to resolve a single purpose. They had also left my skin feeling "slick". I discontinued my usage.
Avatar n tn Hello.I am 14 yrs. old and I have a little bit of acne in my skin,how can I get rid of it???
Avatar n tn I have had, since puberty, around 13 years of age, red cheeks and oily skin. I get pimples when I am stressed out and when not, my skin, including that of my cheeks mellows in color to the hue that is prominent but not cheekwise. However, I am seeking a permanent solution to my red cheeks, which my doctor said was perhaps rosatia.
Avatar f tn Hi. The standard treatment for acne is a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily and a topical retinoid such as Differin (adapalene). Female acne patients will also benefit from taking a combined oral contraceptive pill such as Yasmin or Diane35. The oestrogen in these pills blocks the action of acne-causing hormones on the skin. These are commonly prescribed to teenage girls to clear acne, even if they are not sexually active.
Avatar f tn He or she can help determine the cause of your acne and can offer possible solutions. There are medications that can help treat and prevent the acne. Some washes can actually irritate your already sensitive skin and make the acne worse. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Reasonably priced and very effective. If you are looking for acne solutions, I recommend to go for ZENMED Derma Cleanse System.
Avatar f tn If your skin is oily use a good cleanser for oily skin such as Sparkling Clean by Estee Lauder. Over the counter acne remedies such as Clinique's Blemish Solutions (contains salicylic acid) may help. If not see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily to kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin.
554628 tn?1362781519 I know it works wonders and I would be so happy if I could use it. I'm just going to the store and going to look through all the acne solutions and whichever doesn't have the Salicylic Acid I'm going to buy it up. My problem is I don't know what other ingredients I'm supposed to watch out for. Guess I'm going to have to google... Good luck!
Avatar f tn I'm 13 years old, and I've had acne since I was 8. It was usually Grade 1 acne, but this year, it became worse. On my nose, a cyst or a nodule or a boil-thing formed, and my mom, thinking it was a regular pimple, squeezed it. there was no pus, just blood. After that, I considered it to be a boil. Soon later, she squeezed it again, then rubbed some alcohol over it. The next day, the top layer came off, exposing my raw, red skin.
Avatar f tn Seems to me that you have combination skin. I work with Artistry skin care and cosmetics. Key items to use: Acne - system or a balancing 3 step system. A Pore cleansing mask or the pimple remover heat treatment by Fine lines- eye cream (age defying) Makeup - moisturize with a moisturizer that's based on your skin type. Skin needs to be hydrated before you put on makeup, it will give you a natural glow. I can email you a few ideas, tips and tricks if interested!
Avatar f tn My husband has severe acne on his back, shoulders, and neck. It has left him terribly scarred and it doesn't seem to be going away even though he is in his early 30's. He is very embarrassed by it, and I can't even get him to come to the beach anymore :( Does anyone know of anything that can help him? I feel so helpless and I know it bothers him.
Avatar f tn I never had acne in high school but it started when I was 23. I have oily skin and it leaves ugly marks on my face. I have it no place else on my body. I have been using all sorts of things for my face, not at the same time, but after I realise that the former one I was taking is not working. The best I have used so far were Retin-A and Dr Wexler's acne treatment which I found on
Avatar f tn Talk to your doctor to see if oral or topical antibiotics could help you, and also ask about hormonal solutions. Acne scars are often superficial and fade on their own within a year. Products I recommend to fade them faster are Bio-oil and Palmers Cocoa Butter Scar serum. Clinique make a product called post-blemish formula which fades the scar and discourages a new blemish from forming in the same place. They also make a wide range of cleansers and moisturisers which may help you.
Avatar n tn I realized that my skin tended to get dry and therefore the skin would compensate by producing 'oil' and therefore break out... It was really frustrating because I couldn't find any moisturiser that seemed to help without leading to further break-outs! About six months ago I found 'Clinique anti-blemish' solutions, and it totally changed my skin!
381551 tn?1208757643 What are some solutions to full body acne? Its mainly on my back and buttocks and its not real bad, just pimples here and there. There are some body washes but has anyone had good luck with them?
Avatar n tn Hi. Late onset and adult acne are becoming more common in women. Until you get medical insurance try Freederm (nicotinamide) for your acne, available over the counter. When your insurance is sorted speak to your doctor about taking an anti-androgen pill such as Diane35. Avoid the hormonal coil, mini pill or depo-shot all of which can induce hormonal acne. Eloise.
Avatar f tn ) it won't make acne worse. her skin may simply be that her skin is still too sensative for a product like that. next time encourage her to try a product on only a small, quarter to 50c sized area of her face, where it won't be obvious (maybe near her hairline?) so she can see if there will be an adverse reaction to the products.
Avatar f tn I am 16 weeks and have had clear skin up until now. I have been breaking out on my chin and jawline for the past week. Nothing I use seems to work. And its not just normal pimples, they are red and so sore! I know it is probably hormones, but there has to be something out there to help! I've read not to use sylic acid (sp?) While pregnant soi am at a loss. Any suggestions to help with this????
Avatar m tn It also seems like I have somewhat of a scar on the sides of my noise that are slightly more red/black than my normal skin, which I also think is acne, but I'm not sure. I was wondering what would help me in this situation, or what I could eat to have less acne. Should I stop drinking certain things or eating certain things?
Avatar f tn Hey ladies! First time mom here, 7 weeks pregnant :) but having some serious acne on my neck and jaw line. Never had acne my entire life. I was using some medicated stuff from the drug store until I read online I should avoid this at all costs. Now, guilt ridden, but feeling really ugly to top it off, I am looking for possible solutions to help clear this up! Any ideas would be appreciated :) thank you!
Avatar n tn I just got back from the Derm today and he reviewed my skin and he said that my acne redness is scarring.. Now i thought scarring is indentions in the skin? Is it not and that acne redness will fade with time because according to my derm he said that my acne redness is scarring and that the redness wont go away and that theres nothing that can be done about it. He said that i'll have to live with it for the rest of my life and that the only possible treatment for this is laser.
118884 tn?1270478379 I also have tryed several creams from acne free to nuetrogena to clean and clear advanced solutions also things in between like aveeno and olay creams nothing seems to help and I been getting alot of white heads and some black heads! I just need some advice on what to do ?
Avatar n tn I think a lot of people overlook simple solutions for acne and go right for the harsh medications. I took antibiotics to treat my acne for about a year and my teeth and legs started turning purple so I had to stop. I tried every possible topical product on the market and my skin would always have some sort of red, dry, irritated response.
Avatar n tn 10 years is a lot of time, Miao, and your skin has received damage from acne AND from failed treatments. Most likely, if only birth control pills have worked, your acne has a hormonal origin. In these cases, you may need an endocrinologist more than a dermatologist, as your condition requires hormonal regulation. The birth control pills you tried were too strong for you, but this specialist can help you with softer pills or other solutions... so keep up your hope!
Avatar f tn Hi all. I need some help. I started using Neutrogena Advanced Solutions Acne Therapy Solution on March 3. Used it for two days. Woke up yesterday with extremely dry skin, red blotchy patches over my entire face, extremely itchy and burning skin. Immediately stopped using the products. Woke up today looking as if someone punched me in both of my eyes and cheeks - extremely swollen. I don't know what to do. My mother suggested taking a benedryl.
