Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.

Acne is caused by hormonal imbalance.
Blockage of sebaceous glands causes papules and pustule and cystic acne.
Hormonal work up is essential for proper treatment.

Acne is treatable now.With correct treatment all your pimples ,
scars and dark spots can be treated.

To start with you have to apply Brevoxyl cream twice daily .
Also you can use anti acne face wash like Brevoxyl face wash.

Cryotherapy and chemical peeling can give you fast and long lasting results.They are available at dermatology clinics.

Discuss the option of Isotretinoin with your dermatologist.It will have rapid effect. Will reduce the oil secretion and pimples effectively.

Hope this helps.

Hi Joselena,
You are suffering from acne. Its aetiopathogenesis includes comedogenesis, inflammation, infection and blockage of the sebaceous glands. Cetaphil cleanser is not sufficient.
Once the severity of your disease is assessed, the treatment can be started accordingly.
Consult a dermatologist and be in regular follow ups to avoid future relapses once you get them treated.
