Adult acne itchy

Common Questions and Answers about Adult acne itchy


Avatar n tn It is possible to get adult acne at any age, including when going through the menopause. However, acne doesn't usually itch which makes me think it could be an allergy. Consult a different doctor or dermatologist for a second opinion and let me know how you get on. If it is acne, late onset acne responds very slowly to antibiotics so ask your doctor for a more suitable treatment for you.
Avatar n tn I would much rather prefer just a topical treatment- as opposed to pills of any klind- like the old dry ice treatment but he says they don't use that anymore. Do any dermatologists still use dry ice? Also, any guess as to what this could be? Adult acne, fungal infection, cancerous, not cancerous?
Avatar f tn Can anyone recommend an acne treatment for those cystic acne bumps that take forever to go away? I'm 46 and did Accutane in my 20s with pretty good results until the last several years. I've had the most success with Pro Active, but my skin got really itchy when I wore mineral powder makeup and I kept ruining towels, pillowcases and shirts. I've also tried Acne Free, Murad and Dermatologic plus prescription cream with no luck.
Avatar f tn -sulfacetamide lotion -retin-a cream -and an oral antibiotic (who's name i don't have handy) I've been using the sulfacetamide lotion every morning after the shower, the oral antibiotic 2 hrs after dinner, and the retin-a before bed (increasing in 10 minute intervals every other day). I am up to 2 hours on the retin-a. Some questions: *My face is very flaky. A combination of the terrible cold/weather and the peeling aspect of the medicines, I have facial dandruff.
Avatar f tn A year ago I moved from Florida to Minneapolis, one of the coldest, driest cities in the country. During my first winter here I noticed small itchy red acne bumps on my upper forehead in the coldest months of winter -- I figured it was my snow hat and just tried to wash it often. This year the weather jumped from 80 to 0 within a couple of weeks and has been unusually cold and dry early.
Avatar m tn The condition I have right now is the same condition when I had this severe acne 3 or 4 years ago. Or is this really ADULT ACNE, which concerns my hormone? Please help. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn Rosacea is a completely different skin condition. There is no such thing as adult acne, versus acne present at any other age. acne is a skin condition in which a person of any age has persistent pimples, weather cystic or not. Pimples "white heads, "blackheads" are the result of the body expelling acne bacteria from the pores.
Avatar m tn Hello, From your symptoms it sounds like cystic acne rather than steroid acne or adult acne. Cystic acne is the most severe form of acne vulgaris. Like nodules, cysts begin as a deep break in the pore wall. A membrane then forms around the infection within the dermis. You need to have powerful systemic antibiotics in the form of oral antibiotics. You have already tried Accutane. So antibiotics and birth control pills should work for you.
Avatar f tn I can't quite figure out if this is a case of Adult acne, or an allergic condition, as after having an anti allergic pill the condition improves .
Avatar n tn I am 27 yrs old and finally decided to go see a dermatologist for my very mild adult acne. He prescribed me differin, clindoxyl (Clindamycin and benzyl peroxide) and neo medrol two weeks ago. Since then i use differin every day, clindoyxl every other day and neo medrol i have only used twice. Acne treatment is going fine. But 5 day into the treatment my eyelids became swollen and flaky. Furthermore, my eyes are red and extremely itchy.
Avatar f tn The area where the spots are is itchy not sure if that's the dry skin or something else. As a teen I would use products for acne/oily skin to clear it up. Now as an adult I have no idea what to use as sensitive skin products don't usually treat acne and acne products are for oily skin but mine is dry/sensitive with red patches help! I do have a oily nose but that's completely clear. Its my dry red cheeks which are covered and so itchy! Does anyone know what this acne is?
Avatar n tn I'm a 16 year old in florida and i read other storys on this kinda stuff like this one and the same stuff but yes i want to find out if there is anything i can do i have not had any sexual relations and im defenitly not goin to a adult about this so plz tell me if theres any thing i can do This discussion is related to <a href=''>Acne, pores, lumps on Penis</a>.
Avatar n tn It's getting to the point where I really need help, because it affects my self-esteem. I think it is adult acne and rosacea, but not sure. I was hoping somebody could tell me what it is and if this could be treated with laser and if the insurance would likely pay for it (united). I don't like the idea of taking antibiotics over a long term. Thanks a lot.
Avatar n tn I do not believe this is acne. My skin, normally clear, keeps breaking out in pink, hot, itchy patches on my face.......only my temples and upper facial bones were affected, at first. Now, the line of the rash continues down my cheek. It is worse in the morning, upon awakening. It hurts and itches. It does not look like any of the pictured rashes I have found.
Avatar n tn I have been taking effexor for nearly a year and since taking it, I have been experiencing almost constant acne on my chin area. They are very red, sometimes sore and itchy... and last FOREVER. When one goes, another appears. they are very unsightly! Is it medication related?
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be due to adult acne which occur due to hormonal imbalance at this age. Just keep you face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day. Pat it dry and do not rub it. Avoid picking or pressing the acne. You can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face. If your skin becomes red or peels, you are using too much of the medicine or applying it too often.
Avatar n tn Moreover, two of my church friends have a very similar condition. My sister, who is an ultrasound tech, has suggested adult acne, with the assurance it meets the symptoms—I don’t see it! What can it be?
Avatar f tn all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.
476624 tn?1207853558 I do understand that stinging sensation will be noted, but after 2-3rd attempt of the treatment this bumps starts and on one specific part of my face (Right lower side of mouth/jaw/cheek area). Is this a rash? adult acne? rosacea? parasite? But how come it's just on one spot?
Avatar n tn Now it seems like everytime i turn around something is making me itchy, and pinchy itchy. I am hypoglycemic... and its rough when im not s ure what to eat anymore. I basically eat bacon, noodles (which is really not allowed with hypoglycemia)vegetables... and cheese I even had it when my husband kissed with after eating shrimp and i broke out on my face. These are driving me crazy. right now im on predisone and benadryl... I am soo afraid to eat anything anymore.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like adult onset acne. Just ask your husband to keep his face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day. Pat it dry and do not rub it. Avoid picking or pressing the acne. He can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of the face. If the skin becomes red or peels, you are using too much of the medicine or applying it too often.
Avatar n tn I have visited the Bahamas multiple times now and everytime I go down there, my upper back and shoulders break out in absolutely horrible acne. Mostly it contains whiteheads and then a constant redness starting from the lower shoulder blades up to my neck line. It seems to happen a few days after I go swimming in the ocean but it is at least partially possible it could be due to the over sweating from the warm climate.
Avatar f tn My Legs are soooo itchy!!! I keep putting on lotion every time it gets really itchy! I itch so hard, I end up getting cuts and scrapes on my legs! I guess it's a good thing I bite my nails. When I stopped shaving and my hair started to almost fully grow back out it wasn't as itchy anymore or not itchy at all. It was like I forgot to itch my legs or something!
Avatar n tn I am 24 years old and am plagued by adult acne- my whole life I have had porcelain skin but ever since Ive started working Ive had terrible acne flareups. Ive tried everything and probably have spent thousands of dollars on products and dermatology bills.Im at my wits end and have been considering trying Accutane but am nervous about the dreadful side effects (hairloss, liver damage, birth defects) Is there an aggressive method for clearing acne other than drink water and relaxation?
Avatar n tn I used to get the occasional pimple as a teen, but never so bad as an adult. My really bad adult acne started when I started threading my facial hair. For a long time, I didn't realize the connection..I just thought my acne just got worse over the years. For 12 years, I threaded my face out, put makeup on open pores and had huge cystic nodular acne that left so much scars.
Avatar n tn I have two small dogs. I have had adult acne since I was in my twenties. Have had eczema on my hands and feet, on and off, since my twenties. Have been under extreme stress lately due to being laid-off and my husband's prostate cancer. My race is a mixture of Hebrew, English, and American Indian. Let me know, maybe we can figure out this condition!
Avatar n tn (pronounce ro-z-shea )It's a skin disease causing red pathy skin and it's a sort of adult acne without the big bumbs, i had laser surgery done on my eye a month ago and they couln't figure it out either, I have fibromyalgia and a lot of other pain problems and take a lot of medications, but ibuprofen, i just started about the same time this started but i really need it for my arthrituis..
Avatar n tn I thought it was adult acne and very strange for me. Also at the same time I had some itchy bumps on the side of right knee and some on other leg also. I thought the itchy red bumps on legs were from hiking: one day I was pricked by a prickly plant in Arizona. And I thought the bumps on face were something unrelated. About same time I had ithcy red bumps on arms (about 3 red itchy bumps per arm).
Avatar n tn I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
Avatar n tn It sounds as though you have adult acne. I don't think the Diane is causing this. In fact, the cause of adult acne is not known. Your dryness may be something else, such as an allergy to benzoyl peroxide. I advise you to stop all home treatments and see a dermatologist for proper diagnosis. I see no problem with your staying on Diane, however. Take care. Dr.
