Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin acne

Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, My skin is EXTREMELY oily. And because of the oily skin, I have a lot of blackhead and enlarged pores. In the morning when I wake up, my skin feels greasy. Is there anything I can do to reduce the shine? Also, I have mild acne and I think it's due to the oily skin. Thank you for you advice!
Avatar n tn The only side effects he mentioned was pregnancy, which isn't a concern for me since I've had a tubal and dry lips. My second question is about my skin in general. I've always had oily skin. I've never used lotions and creams on my legs or arms, and sunscreen was always avoided-I don't spend a lot of time in the sun. This is the problem. When I do use lotions on areas like my feet and hands, my skin doesn't absorb them.
Avatar f tn Oily skin and acne are symptoms of hyperthyroidism (overmedication), not side effects of proper doses of levothyroxine. Perhaps your meds need to be reduced??? Do you have any other hyper symptoms? If you have recent labs, please post with reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own lab report. Do you know the cause of your hypothyroidism?
Avatar m tn This might sound strange, but after testing myself for some time I can say, that ejaculation makes my skin oily and causes acne. After 4 days the skin gets back to normal (I've been testing this for several months and the results are always the same). I've read that the two things are not related, but my skin says opposite. I am 29 years old and have acne problem on my back, shoulders and neck, fortunately not so much on the face. My parents and brother haven't had problems with acne.
6706619 tn?1391320443 its not a home remedy, but I had this same problem and tried so so much everything either made my skin too oily or too dry but I bought clean and clear advantage acne control, took the oily skin away, cleared my acne and made my skin super soft all the time!
Avatar f tn Mine was totally fine until I started my third trimester....now it's extremely oily and I have patches of flaky skin that are raw red itchy and very oily....does anyone have some clue as to what causes this and what will make it go away!!??
Avatar n tn I found this miracle soap by clinique its exspeacially made for oily skin. ive suffered with very oily skin and acne all my life and this soap seems to work the best.
Avatar f tn i have extremely oily skin and i think its because i use my acne medications such as differin and duac but even though i wash my face 3 times a daii it is still oily and its worse during parties because i cant wash my face then..? wat should i doo..any herbal remedies as well?
Avatar f tn Ive never had greasy hair nor oily skin or acne when I was a teenager or pregnant except with my first girl. I dont know what to use. My face is sensitive already so I use minimal product. I also usually have beautiful natural skin so I dont use makeup except a little bronze. If anyone has any home remedies or any similar issues, please respond back. My mom said it will go away at some point in my pregnancy. I pray. I feel so ugly and gross with oily skin and greasy hair. Thanks ladies.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am an 18 year old male and three years ago my doctor prescribed me with differin for my acne. I stopped using it because it wasnt working. My skin was perfectly balanced before but after using differin it started geting oily and greasy. I am currently on epiduo and that has helped a little but i still get an oily face.
Avatar m tn Hello, In oily skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. It can be caused by heredity, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills and hot and humid weather. Oily skin needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness.
Avatar n tn If your body produces more androgens that it needs you will have oily skin. Bacteria on the skin feeds off this excess oil, clogging the pores and resulting in acne. One month is not a very long time to take antibiotics for acne. They may need to be taken for at least 8-12 weeks or longer. Differin is designed to be used every night, unless your skin is particularly sensitive. Cleansing alone will not heal acne, and switching between face washes will not be harmful. Eloise.
1689131 tn?1305761867 Hello, Acne are very common on oily skin. You can prevent and treat acne by changing your lifestyle like eating proper diet, getting a good amount of sleep and drink at least eight glasses of water daily. You can also treat acne by cleaning your face regularly, using skincare products, apply antibacterial topical medications.
Avatar n tn Eating oil doesn't make your skin oily. I don't know what's in Zenmed, but I can't think of any ingredients that would cause your palms to peel. I recommend that you see a dermatologist. There isn't any good way to make oil go away, but you can minimize the breakouts easily in most cases. Meantime, I suggest that you avoid any potentially irritating products. Take care. Dr.
Avatar m tn Is this a good face washing schedule for my oily, acne skin? Morning: 1. Face Cleanse (Salicylic Acid). 2. Face Scrub (Exfoliate). 3. Moisturizer. Night: 1. Face Cleanse (Salicylic Acid). 2. Benzoyl Peroxide.
Avatar f tn Try this product called MURAD it helps tackle acne and oily skin.. BTW have you been to a dermatologist by any chance? And always remember when washing your face use a solid color towel with lupe warm water.. GOOD LUCK....
Avatar n tn I am 51 years old and have always had excessive oily, acne prone skin. I've been to many dermatologists and doctors and have tried so many things, but nothing works. Please help me. I feel so ugly and dirty with the amount of oil and break-outs on my face at my age. I can live with the acne, but it's the oily skin that I would give anything to find a control for. Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn Ok so guys, I have been an acne sufferer since I was 12 years old. I am now 22. I have used so many products I even took acne medication (pills) did not do nothing! So as girls already know the birth control pill can do wonders for your acne! Yes it can! I was on Alesse for a few years and my skin was id say doing pretty good. But then. After birth control. Wow let me tell you. It was worst then it ever was. I started getting cystic acne on my neck and chest! Like really bad.
Avatar n tn My acne is very mild but it isn't improving with my current skin care routine. My problem is that while my skin is acne-prone and oily, it's also very sensitive and therefore gets red really easily. I'm also on birth control and it hasn't helped clear anything. I really would like to just get rid of my current acne without irritating my skin and getting all red. Over the counter products don't clear my skin, they only keep it under control. I used ProActive and it was too strong for me. Help!
Avatar m tn I have been taking it now for 6 weeks and my acne has cleared but my skin is still oily. I have never had oily skin before and it is so difficult to deal with. When will Yasmin start to work & help my oily skin?
Avatar n tn Another product I like is the moisturiser by Lutsine Hydrafnia which is for acne prone skin which is undergoing acne treatments.
Avatar n tn My favorite ranges for oily skin are Effaclar by La Roche-Posay and Sparkling Clean by Estee Lauder. However, over the counter products may not result in total skin clearance. It is always best to see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics and/or a topical retinoid.
