Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.

Pimples or acne can be caused by harmonal imbalance.

Also I would like to know,

1)Have you used anything apart from clindamycin?

2)Do you have menstrual disturbunce/are your cycles regular?

3)Do you work on laptop/computer for long time?Have stressful job?



Acne is now very much treatable.

Oral medications like antibiotics /isotretinoin/vitamins are helpful.

Topical creams like antibiotics /benzoy peroxide/ retinoids are also effective.

Certain procedure like cryosurgery/chemical peels/ laser also very effective.

A combination of cryotherapy and salicylic peel works wonder.

Dark circles are very resistent to treatment.They occur due to stress and nutritional deficiency.
Argipeel and nutritional supplements like vitamins and antioxidants can help.


A good dermatologist will be able to provide you with all the above options.



Please upload your photos so that more accurate advise can be provided.



Pls let me know if you need further clarification.

Hope this helps.

Regards.
Dr XXXXXXX

Hi Again,

Thanks for the details.

Both dark circles and acne can be stress related.prolonged computer usage can cause dark circles.

Please try to de-stress yourself in between.

Drink a lot of water . Eat one fruit everyday.

Use a good quality face wash like Acwash and wash your face 3-4 times a day.

Visit a dermatologist who can prescribe you some topical and oral medications.
And provide you few procedures mentioned above for Acne and dark circles.

Hope this helps.

If you are satisfied with answer please accept it and rate it at the end.

I will be available for follow up in future.


Wishing you good health.
Regards
DrSudarshan
