Have issues with complexion, pimples and marks. What to do? - Online Doctor Chats
HI am XXXXXXX
have few questions regarding my skin problems
Please go ahead
i had taken opinion from 2 different doc. wanted to know which one i can opt for
What exactly is the issue?
second opinion: use Clean and clear facewash, apply beminor and after 30 mints use Suncross
can you tell me what is the best option
It will depend on the severity of the condition, XXXXXXX
Is it possible for you to send me a picture so that I can guide you better
ok...my problem is i have weatish complexion but i look good only for 1 hr after face wash after that i look dark and pale for the whole day...also i get pimples which are white in colour and leaves marks...have lot of marks on my face
so what do you suggest...?
I would suggest that you send me a picture
Do you use a sunblock regularly Priya?
no i dnt use sunscreen lotion for my face...an afraid that it will cause more pimples
You must use a gel based preparation
But its essential that you use a sunblock
A gel based version is available from Lotus
Take one with SPF 60
oh ok...so wat can i use that is recommended by the 2 docs
That will not cause pimples
I think you'll have to use a combination of the 2 recommendations
Cetaphil is definitely a good cleanser
Much better than clean and clear
ok so i will use cetaphil...how about sunscreen lotion and cream for pimples and marks..?
You should also use benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin in the day time
Next, for the marks , you can use 2 things
are you married Priya?
no am not married
But its a temporary side effects
This wwill help with the marks
another thing is HYSEAC cream for the marks
This one is slightly expensive
Use it at night
First try these 2 things
If they dont work
then we'll think about the peel
oh ok...let me tell you what i have understood...
do we get Cetaphil facewash and sunscreen....?
ok so what i can do is use cetaphil facewash and apply cetaphil sunscreen lotion everyday...? am i right?
Take the sunscreen with 50 SPF
ok i will take cetaphil sunscreen with 50 spf...correct?
the sunscreen needs to be put 20 minutes before you fo out
did not understand the treatment you suggested for pimples and marks....can you suggest creams or lotions...? and when to apply/
Then you also need to apply clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide gel in the day time
the brand name is Benzaclin
this is for the pimples
is that ok?
should i ask in the medical store for Benzaclin...?
what about the marks...?
For the marks, I want you to put adapalene cream 0.1% at night time
This will cause dryness and redness of lips
But this is a temporary side effect
should i ask for adapalene cream 0.1% in the medical store....?
That will go away
let me repeat wat i understood
1. i will wash my face with Cetaphil facewash
2. when to use Benzaclin and cetaphil sunscreen lotion...?
wnt to kno the time gap for these two...
In the daytime before leaving the house
no time gap
Use them simultaneously
first put the benzaclin
then the sunscreen
oh ok...this 3 things in the morning...at i will use adapalene cream 0.1% in the night before i go to sleep or night time...
with hyseac cream also in the night time
both simultaneously...ie adapalene and hyseac..?
But Hyseac will be slightly expensive
around Rs1500 to Rs 2000
But it will be safer than a peel
Oops! any other option for hyseac cream...
Its not necessary XXXXXXX
Its only an adjunct
so i can use only adapalene right?
But use only at night
It reacts with the sun and causes a reaction
sure i will use adapalene during night times ONLY!
several other things I wanted to emphasize on
You must have 2-3 litres of water in a day
It is supposed to really cleanse the system
XXXXXXX breathing for ow long...?
5 minutes at the maximum
Then finally eat healthy
When they say XXXXXXX You are what you eat"
sure will follow them... :-)
I want you to have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables
and limit the pepsi/junk intake
i dont drink pepsi or coke...i will avoid junk...
a lot of times people dont have enough food to keep themselves healthy
It shows on their body and their skin
hmmmm....true i miss my breakfast...
It is the most important meal of the day
can i do facial....?
Its not important, honestly
If you eat well and have a healthy lifestyle
oh ok....any homemade remedies or just the creams that you have suggesed will work...?
you dont need any of that stuff
for oily skin?
Yes its for oily skin
cool! when will i get to see the results?
In fact, if you mix atta and besan in curd/milk
You dont need a facial cleanser
Its a very effective cleanser
With the creams, XXXXXXX you should have results within 1-2 weeks
another thing is dont touch the pimples
oh really! that is so nice...thanks...!!!
sure will follow that as well
Thanks for consulting me
