Hi there Sapna.

At the outset, dermatology is a 'visual ' field. As such, one prefers to have some visual to go by. Is it possible for you to upload any clear photograph of face (preferably multiple views ) & upload it on this website using the 'upload data' feature to the right of ur screen?

If you desire privacy, please use our premier 'ask-a-specialist/doctor' feature & ask for me by name.

I cant say dermadew is a bad soap but if you have redness & acne, i personally would prefer a cleanser like Cetaphil (galderma company) now available in India.

What pimple cream did the doctor give you? Are u going out in the sun/outside much? UV light at any time of day can aggravate your condition; do use an umbrella for the moment

Visit a dermatologist nearest you for best results. Drink lots of water especially in the morning. It will help your condition clear.

Wish you good health & a clear face. Best regds,

FOR PIMPLES YOU HAVE TO KEEP SKIN DRY
DONT USE OILS ON SKIN
DONT EAT OILY OR GREESY FOOD

CALAMINE CAN BE APPIED DAILY WITHOUT SIDE EFFECT FOR LONG
ALSO APPLY CLINDAMYCIN GEL A NIGHT
CONTINUE BOTH FOR 3 MONTHS

Hi sapna,



Thanks for writing in.

It seems you are allergic to creams.Your skin is of sensitive type.

You better avoid any cosmetics ,home remedies.

You can use cetaphil moisturizer cream as daily moisturizer.Calosoft contains calamine which can dry the skin in winter.You can use dermadew baby soap.



Hope this helps.



Regards.
