Dr. XXXXXXX here
Hi, Am AAAAA here
How can I help you?
I used fair and lovely for many years
later I stopped it and now when i started using it again
I started getting more pimples
on my face
can i use any other fairness cream
If you have active acne lesions, then fairness cream may be of no much benefits.
You should get it treatment with acne medications/
earlier i checked with dermotologist, they advised me to use only suncreen lotion
I am using AZAC soap for face
using suncreen, my face looks dull and oily
I think sunscreen lotion was suggested to increase fairness.
it looks as if i didnt wash my face for many days
I understand your concern; but I would like to know if your current issue is with the acne or increasing fairness.
You mentioned you developed acne now?
and dark spots
Let me brief you.
Acne is a chronic condition which is known to recur.
The recurrence is caused by various factors.
There are a preparations containing isotretinoin which are effective in treating acne lesions as well as reducing pigmentation caused by it.
It is known to be effective in treating non-infected acne spots.
Infected conditions will need antibiotic - topical as well as oral.
If acne eruptions are very frequent, then you may try oral medications.
These medications and topical agents are prescribed by a dermatologist. You can visit one dermatologist and get it prescribed (based on the current acne status - infected or non infected and based on the severity of recurrence).
Now, regarding acne induce pigmentation
such pigmented spots improve with time.
Use of sun screen lotions fasten the recovery rate.
If you are not comfortable with oily nature of sun screen; you may try gel based sun screen.
Sun cross is one such gel based product.
you can try them.
can i try Lakme
I read the reviews
And for those non resistant pigmentation, adapalene containing creams such as mederma can be useful.
Personally I am unaware of lakme reviews.
However you can still try it and see the benefits.
As, the effects of cosmetic products varies from person to person, you may try any products to see the benefits.
Have you followed?
thank you very much
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
