Brief Answer:
Acne vulgaris and its management

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed all the attached photographs and you seem to be suffering from acne vulgaris.
You should avoid using hhsone cream as it is a steroid and will provide only temporary benefit and will ultimately ead to worsening of your pimples.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to take capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily and apply adapelene gel 0.1 percent on the pimples over the face at night.
On the neck and chest region you can apply benzoyl peroxide 10 percent gel on the bumps twice daily.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Besides this avoid oiling of scalp, avoid using oily creams and cosmetics on the face and neck and reduce the intake of sugary foods.
Regards

Thank you Madam.
I have some queries , could you please give your a little bit time on this.
May I use adapelene gel 0.1 percent on my face only night?Then what should I use on my face on day time.
Is benzoyl peroxide 10 percent gel is a washing gel? Can I use this to wash my face also? If not then please suggest me a face was for daily use.

You have to use adapelene gel on the pimples over the face at night time only.
No need to apply any cream during the day time.
Benzoyl peroxide 10 percent is a cream formulation that needs to be applied on the pimples over the neck twice daily.

Dear Sir, My husband had a boils and itching problem in under arms and chest. After consulting a doctor he took Momentasone+Fusidic acid combination cream along with Atarex and Amoclav tablets. After this course his boils are cured. In subsequent follow-up visit, doctor told us to use LS dew soap and dusting powder Absorbant and Fudic cream to cure rest of the boils remained. Now he is fine and does not have boils, However he has a itching problem on chest. May be due to sweating problem or what he cant even sleep at night due to it. also skin become dark and thick in that area. he took atarex but could not effective in itching at night again doctor has told to stop using that dusting powder and Fudic cream as skin becomes dry by using powder thick due constant itching on that and suggested HHzole cream and Nutex tablet. However, after taking its first dose, it does not have any effect on itching. Also we dont understand why doctor has given Nutex and HHzole cream though she said my husband does not have fungal infection. Kindly suggest for this itching problem

My husband has been on Lipitor and Avalide to control his cholesterol and blood pressure. We have been trying to conceive for three years. His sperm analysis last year was pretty bad, with low counts and poor morphology. I keep hearing that it could be his medications that are causing the problem, but I can't find any information online. His physician refuses to consider the possibility. Can the problem lie with his blood pressure and/or cholesterol medicine? If so, are they any safe medicine that he can take while we are trying to conceive?
