Thank you gor writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist).
I have gone through your query and I have viewed the image.

You have comedones as well as inflammatory papules and nodules on face. If used together Saslic DS face wash and Deriva CMS gel can cause irritation which exactly seems to have happened in your case therefore I suggest you to discontinue saslic DS face wash and instead use Cetaphil gentle cleansing lotion for face wash, twice daily.

Discontinue all topical medications for 3 days. Use Flutivate cream, twice daily for 3 days on dry patches and rashes on face. This would help resolve irritation and redness. Thereafter use Nadoxin (Nadifloxacin 1%gel) for day time application on acne and Deriva CMS gel for night application.

You may also take an oral antiacne antibiotic e.g doxycycline (Microdox LBX 100mg, twice daily) since you also have inflammatory acne. To be taken after irritation is cleared.

Over the last month or so I have sore bumps coming up on my face which, when I pierce with my fingers or a clean tissue are extremly painful and contain a watery substance followed by atery blood then blood. I clean them with Betadone, an antiseptic, and a scab forms. However the bumps keep coming up in various places on my face and I have a patch on my neck. Even though a scab forms the bumps reform in the same place underneath. Please can you tell me what it could possibly be and how to get rid of them?

Hi, I had suffered with severe acne for about 5 years, tried different products such as proactiv and other skin treatments. My doctor suggested accutane, and so, last year i took the drug and for about 4 months after, my skin stayed clear. But, my acne has come back, not as severe as it was but it still flares up. I am currently on antibotics and trying murad, a cleanser that my beauty therapist thought would do the trick. Do you have any idea of why im getting my acne back? and, what steps should i take from here? Go back on accutane and try again? Thanks.
