Suggest medication for pimples
I am getting pimples on my cheek.Any advice ?
Salicylic acid facewash & adapelene gel, upload pictures
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
For acne I usually recommend my patients to use a salicylic acid facewash twice daily and apply Adapelene 0.1 percent gel on the pimples at bedtime.
I would recommend you to upload the photographs of your face so that I can grade the severity of your acne and can guide you accordingly.
Besides this avoid cosmetics, facials and cleansing, avoid sugary foods, hot humid weather and oiling of scalp.
Thanks for your response.
I have only pimples in my face but my sister has lot and an oily face..please suggest for her.
Capsule doxycycline, salicylic facewash, adapelene gel
I have reviewed the attached photograph and would recommend you to take capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily at bedtime, apply Adapelene gel 0.1 percent on the pimples and comedones at bedtime and use salicylic acid facewash twice daily for 6 weeks.
These are prescription drugs and should be taken under the supervision of the doctor.
Your sister can start with the same treatment and see response after 2 weeks and then the treatment can be modified further depending on the response.
Attached is my sister's photograph. would it be okay to go for peeling for my sister's face as they're so many pimples and rough skin?
Should go for chemical peels
I have reviewed the attached photograph and she should definitely go for chemical peels for her acne.
She can go for salicylic acid peels
This will definitely improve her acne as well as rough texture.
