Brief Answer: Acne face Detailed Answer: Hi , Thanks for the query. I completely understand your concern and I hope I am able to help you for the same. Now your problem is that of acne. Since you have recently moved to a new place, so such a change in place and climate is known to produce some degree of aggravation of the acne lesions. You have not provided any details about what medicines you are already using over the acne lesions. Before coming to the exact treatment, I would like you to follow certain precautions:  1. Avoid using any oily creams or lotions over face as much as possible. you can however use oil free moisturizers  2. Wash your face frequently inorder to keep it dry  3. Drink plenty of water  4. Try to avoid eating dry fruits  5.Avoid touching or squeezing of pimples  6. Avoid Hair oil  7. Always use a sunscreen (SPF> 26) when going out in the sun.This will help in further darkening of the face . Also it will prevent the development of acne scars. Now since you have active lesions of acne, you will have to start using an anti acne agent. Something like clindamycin gel is effective in most cases. It can be applied twice a day over the acne lesions. Also as far as the soap is concerned, it would be better to use a salicylic acid based face wash twice a day since it helps to control the acne lesions too. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Take care Wishing you speedy recovery Dr Geetika Paul MD( Dermatology)
