Can continue kozimax. acutret
causes initial flare
Kozimax cream is a combination of kojic acid
and vitamin C
primarily that causes lightening of the skin. It will lighten the pigmentation but wont work on pimples.
Benzac contains benzoyl peroxide
which acts on pimples. I usually advice my patients to apply it in minimal amount over the lesion only that too on alternate day basis initially. If despite that, one gets irritation and side effects like hyperpigmentation
, it is not adviced to continue further.
You may start applying like i have advised that is on alternate day basis , a very thin film over the lesion only.
Over the hyperpigmented area, you may continue with kozimax till pigmentation is gone.
Acutret may lead to flare of pimples in the initial first month of starting this medication. But later there is definite improvement with it.
You may discuss my opinion with your doctor. I am sure he/she will agree with my opinion.
If you have further query , you may ask me. Else you may close the discussion and rate it.
