Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
pimples have become a life style disease & a disease of metropolitan cities...we hardly see them in villages.But can also be because of hormonal disturbances in our body,esp if it increases 2 days prior to periods.Never use a moisturizing cream on face.Avoid using oily soaps too.Use specific anti acne soap like acnelak or dermadew acne soap twice a day.Use nadoxin cream over pimples in day time and adaferin at night.This might help you a lot. Now a days there are very good tablets available for pimples but should be taken under dermatologists supervision only.They can be either azithromycin or isotretinoin tab . Tab azithromycin (500mg) once daily for 3 days(take this tab 1 hr before food).Hormonal pimples can be treated with oral contraceptive pills .They are very effective and safe.All these needs blood test before taking them. For marks use retino A (0.025%) cream at night only on the spot for 2 hrs then wash off . Don’t forget to use a water based sunscreen like UVAVO daily full face so as to protect yourself from direct sunlight which ca increase your dark marks Along with this u need to take 10-12 glasses of water per day & a good sleep. .A chemical peel can also help reduce the marks .Get it done from an expert dermatologist only.
