Suggest treatment for severe acne
I am having severe acne problem for last 3 months. I tried using lactocalamine for sometime but that did not really help much. I visited a dermatologist and she prescribed Crixan gel to be applied twice a day and Tab Doxy once a day for 6 weeks.
My questions to you are
A. Can I use another sunscreen on top of Crixan gel while going to work?
B. What is the time frame generally for the cure of acne?
C. Are there any other precautions that I need to take and is this medication correct?
Upload a photograph, both the gel should not be overlapped
