666357 tn?1225318814 There are lots of good products for blotchy reddened skin. I like Rosaliac by La Roche-Posay, Redness Relief by Eucerin and Redness Solutions by Clinique. If you are prone to breakouts ask your doctor for Differin gel (adapalene 0.1%). This is a topical synthetic retinoid which treats mild to moderate acne. It is very good at relieving the soreness associated with acne. If your acne is more severe you may also be prescribed a course of oral antibiotics.
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 bathandbodyworks.com.
Avatar f tn Hi. 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.

1629641 tn?1310703804 Your skin type also has a factor in your type of acne. If your pores are big, they allow bacteria to get into your skin and create acne. First you can try over the counter solutions, face cleansers, to help. You have to use them everyday. I usually would use them every morning and night. If these don't help you'll have to see a dermatologist if you want a higher dose of cleansing products. They will determine the best type from there.
Avatar n tn Washing alone does not clear acne. In addition to your cleansing regime, you will need to apply a treatment gel such as Freederm (nicotinamide) available without a prescription. If over-the-counter remedies prove inadequate, see your doctor for a prescription-strength gel such as Duac (benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin). Eloise.
Avatar f tn ve tried ProActive, Murad (which made my acne unbelievably much worse), Neutrogena Acne Solutions, and AcneFree, along with dozens of over-the-counter-cleansers. The only thing that seems to have an effect is Clean & Clear's Persagel, but that makes my skin very dry, flaky, and tight. Moisturizers make my skin oily (and a lot of them now a days have soy and I'm allergic to that, also). There is one cleanser that doesn't make my skin extremely dry, just really tight.
1156171 tn?1273087876 The only thing that works on the 2 causes of acne(too much oil in sebaceous glands & toxic by products of candida) is Clear Skin Image from coenzyme a.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had mild to medium acne during puberty but it never really seemed to stop, continued on and off into my early 20s. I tried all kinds of anti-acne products, cheap and very expensive ones, but nothing really helped. 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!
Avatar n tn The drug accutane is a good solution for SEVERE acne, however it does have some bad side effects. Suiside being a side effect the is not reversible. Better options are a Rx for antibiotic to kill the bacteria in the dermis, and a topical retinoid like Differin gel or Tazerac. Retinoids are derived from vitamin A and stimulate cell turnover which does " clean out " the pores. It also reduces oil production which is a major ingredient in the formation of acne.

Avatar m tn I've had bad acne since junior high school. I'm 24 yrs old now, and my face still has acne all over. I have been to 3 different dermatologists in my area. Each dermatologist has put me on different prescription medications and none have worked for me. I have been on Doxycycline, Erythromycin, Clindamycin phosphate gel, erythromycin topical solution, differin gel, and a few others that I cant remember.
Avatar n tn Well I've had this reddish skin around my nose for couple of years, maybe less, but I can't treat it off. Since I have occasionally acne on my nose I've thought that it's just acne red spots that would go away eventually as the skin produces new layers, but it's not going anywhere.

Avatar n tn You should see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily. These kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Your doctor can also prescribe a prescription-strength acne gel such as Differin (contains adapalene). If a fair trial of these medicine results in failure or relapse your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist. A dermatologist can prescribe Oral Isotretinoin (previously branded as Accuatne) which is the strongest acne treatment available.
150937 tn?1235943880 I have red cheeks that are "warm to touch" the skin is raised (looks like acne, but it comes and goes) It is also on my forehead. Does anyone know what this might be? At first I thought it might be related to my blood pressure elevating. When I was in my teens, my cheeks would get very red (no bumps though) when I was stressing about something. My face is an awful mess, does anyone have any suggestions on how to treat this?
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 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?
431685 tn?1324337598 Hi. It is common to get acne on your face chest and back, especially during adolescence due to the change in hormones. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to control it until you are no longer prone to oily skin and spots. Clinique make a good range called Blemish Solutions, including an anti-bacteria soap and a Chest & Back spray. I also like Estee Lauder's Sparkling Clean and Clear Difference ranges.
Avatar n tn I really need some kind of treatment that will work with my sensitive skin yet get rid of the acne. I am currently using Spectro Gel for sensitive skin and La Roche Posay moisturizer, and have tried many acne spot treatments. Right now I'm switching between tea tree oil and a mixture of yeast and water. Does anyone have any suggestions???
