Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

Treatment of acne would be oral medication, creams and daily skin care routine which further helps in treatment of acne.

Oral medication will be tablet doxycycline 100 mg. you will require a prescription for it.

Creams would be:-

Application of benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel once a day on the Pimples and Application of Retin A cream 0.025% on full face at night for 2 hrs.
All the applications will have to be done for 6 weeks.

All these medications will require a prescription from your GP.

You need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen, creams daily.

Cleanse your face with cetaphil cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily. Sunscreen needs to be used daily; Neutrogena would be a good choice.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

Please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

Regards

i've just come off accutane and i've been having hard stools with some blood (though i think that's just from an anal tear due to the hard stool) they come out more like rabbit poop. I guess it's cos the roaccutane dries everything out. Is there anything I can do to get my stools back to normal?
