Brief Answer:
Dermadew cream is a moisturiser.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting in XXXXXXX

Dermadew soap is used for pimples.But,the cream is moisturiser and it will be oily. You can discontinue the cream.

Apart from soap, I usually prescribe antibiotic Erythromycin to my patients with acne.

You should avoid oily foods. Wash your face with soap water 4 times in a day.

For dark spots, there are many medicines available. I usually prescribe Melalite cream to my patients.

Hope I answered your query.

If you have any further questions, I will clarify.

Wish you good health.
