Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Yes, you can use the combination of Sofromycin and retinol for acne.

Also you can opt for a better combination like Clindamycin and Adapalene.This has very good acceptance and efficacy.

If it is Salsic fash wash you are using , I would recommend not to .As this face wash leaves scars marks on the face.Salsic face wash is better for after acne, when used during you have acne it can cause scar marks at the site of the acne.

You can continue with Pantene shampoo for dandruff.If dandruff is associated with itching in the scalp then using KETO shampoo would be a better option.

Do consume lots of fruits.
Lessen the fat and stored food.
Do not consume foods with preservatives.
Do not frequently wash your face, this can lead to infections of the acne as the protective sebaceous secretion gets washed off.
Reduce the non vegetarian content in the food.
Apply the Ointments after thoroughly washing your face.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
