Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Black heads appear due to closure of sebaceous gland pore. These need to be removed by using dermabrador. Once these blackheads are removed you should use tretinoin gel. This will help in opening up pores and removing scars. Let me know if you have any other doubts. thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Mishu, The main aim of dermaabrasion is to remove the black heads mechanically. If these are easily getting removed by scrub, there is no need to go for procedure. You can start using tretinoin now itself. Apply tretinoin 0.025% gel in evevning, keep it for two hours wash and sleep. Use sunscreen in morning. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Hi I'm a 17 year old male. Recently (past 2 weeks or so) I've had some irritation in the meatus of my penis from it rubbing against the inside of my boxers. Upon further inspection I noticed that the hole appears to be getting bigger, as if splitting downwards. I'm a heavy masturbator, and I've been taking Isotretinoin for acne which has made my skin exceptionally dry. I was wondering if this could be the cause of the split? Is there any way to prevent it from splitting further and return it to its original size? I'm very concerned, but I'd rather not go see a doctor as it's very embarrassing. Could you please help? Are there any creams, or ointments, or anything that I could use? Would Vaseline or Sudocrem help? PLease please please help! Thank you so much!

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?
