Sir i have white acne on face from a long
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query.
I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas so that I can grade the severity of your acne and can guide you treatment accordingly.
Acne and its management
I have reviewed the attached photographs.
You are mostly having closed comedones.
I would recommend you to take tablet minocycline 100 mg once daily and apply adapelene 0.1 percent gel on the comedones and pimples at night.
For faster results I would recommend you to consult a doctor and get them extracted.
These are prescription drugs and should be taken under the supervision of the doctor.
Also avoid oiling of scalp, avoid facials, cosmetics, sugary foods and dairy foods.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
12-14 weeks, 90 percent resolution of acne
You need to take these medicines for at least 12-14 weeks and they will cause upto 90 percent cure of your acne.
If you get them extracted and take the medicines I have mentioned they will not come back.
Whenever you apply the cream it should be in minute amounts and apply only on the affected areas.
In the beginning apply for 1-2 hours and then wash your face with plain water.
Gradually increase the duration of application of the cream and keep it overnight.
Start with medicines only, they will be effective
You can start with medicines only.
They will be effective.
You can take the medicines from a pharmacy but they should be taken under the supervision of the doctor.
For cleansing you can go for a cleanser like cetaphil cleansing lotion for sensitive skin.
