Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX

Stomach and liver are not the cause for acne. Oily skin can be treated with oral isotretinoin. Acne can be treated with topical Clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide gels in morning and retinoic acid gels at night. Face wash containing salicylic acid are also beneficial in taking care of oily skin and acne. Oral antibiotics are required in treating pustular lesions of acne. Examination by Dermatologist should be taken for starting the treatment.

Let me know if you have more concerns.

Thanks
Dr.Rohit Batra

Dear XXXXXX

Acne marks comprises of two things- hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

Hyperpigmentation can be treated with hydroquinone solutions or glycolic acid peels while scars can only be reduced with fractional lasers. Dermaroller is another option; but not as effective as laser.

Dear XXXXXX,

Thanks for your follow up query.

As mentioned before hyperpigmentation can be reduced with hydroquinone preparation. Hydroquinone is available in a solution form and can be used for the same. Your nearby doctor/pharmacist will know about it.

Cream based preparation can't be used for the fact that they make skin oily and will result in acne.

If hydroquinone solution fails to give results then glycolic acid peels are the best option.

Regards
Dr.Rohit
