your acne is curable. dont worry.
follow the following:
1. clindac a solution ( clindamycin) : apply over your face at bed time for 15 days
2. tab doxycycline 100mg twice daily after food for 5 days.
3. change face wash to elovera body wash
4. stop using harsh creams. switch to lactocalamine ( caladryl) which is a skin soothing agent plus is sun protective as well.
5. last but not the least drink plenty of water and cut down on junk food( if you take it)
kindly dont prick if you dont want scars

do get back to me in a week to 10 days time.
thanks - dr sujjalaxmi

Hey there Vaishnavi. Happy 20th Birthday in advance. I hope the following will be of some use to you in achieving your goal. Use an antibacterial face cleanser on your face & leave on for 10 mts twice a day; follow that up with topical benzoyl peroxide 2.5% & adapalene creams at 2-3 hour intervals in the evenings after returning from college/work. Remember to apply them sparingly in small quantities as they may cause stinging/burning otherwise. You may consider using a 'neutral ' face pack after a week (at weekly intervals) & since your parents are against medicated peels, try multani mitti (fuller's earth) natural stuff as a pack & it will 'brighten' your copmplexion. All this mind you, is off the cuff advice to help you on your way in the short run. Ideally, please visit a dermatologist near your home. Dont worry we are ALL good dermatologists' :) Wish you well...cheers. Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD Dermatologist, Cosmetologist & Venereologist, Bangalore, India
