Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for the blocked pores and formation of redness after squeezing.

Let you understand that our skin contains oil glands and these can get blocked due to apposition of surface at arm pit areas.

There are certain biochemical agents which can help to reduce the blockage and therefore unclog the pores. In my patients with your kind of problem I suggest them for the Application of Tretinoin or Adapalene gel. These gels not only removes the clogging material but reduces the oil therefore reduction of depositing material and formation of cysts.

I suggest you to ask your dermatologist for the same and take guidance accordingly.

I hope this information will help you. I will be glad to help you any further.

With regards,

Dr Sanjay

Hi I am 33 yrs married woman and suffering with acne since 15 years. Al long as I am under treatment( clindamycin) my skin is good and as soon as I stop using creams suggested by dermat I break out again. Fed up of all these. Recently my GP suggested me tretinoin 0.1% every night but still getting acne and have dark spots all over the face. Will it be safe to use kojivit gel once a day( in morning) and tretinoin together to get rid of acne and dark spots. Thanks Nisha
