Pimples on forehead. Are hormones acting up? Use benzac?

Will this cost money, for you to answer me? I am fourteen My question is, I have some pimples on my fore head, they are not there because of oily skin or something like that, they are there because I think my hormones are crazy, and there is no pattern to my period and I get it so often. I also have crohns disease is that helps. So how do I get rid of these pimples? I have used tooth paste, I have this cream mum got from the chemist called benzac Ac. I have used the baking soda and water method. The pimples are not big, some are scaring, some a white heads.

Ideal treatment would be to use oral antibiotics and local antibiotics creams.Taking steam to open up skin pores and washing faces repeatedly can also be useful.

Hello Dear...
Thanks for your query.

First of all I must mention why Acne is occuring .the causes are ---
1]increased production of sebum
2]pilosebaceous duct hyperkeratosis
3]Infection of pilosebaceous glands with Propionibacterium acnes.

My advice would be :
-Do not squeeze or scratch the pimples.
-Keep your skin clean,Have healthy diet & lots of fluids.
-Avoid too much oily foods.
-Apply topical Clindamycin gel over the pimples
-You can use topical tretinoin over the comedones [ be careful,burning sensation & redness occurs often after applying]
- if have you are having too much of nodulocystic acne you can use oral Isotretinoin for 4-6 months [but always under supervision of your dermatologist]

Hope this helps you.
Stay in touch with your dermatologist.

Take care :)
