Suggest Treatment For Zits On Face

default
Posted on Thu, 5 Feb 2015
Question: Hi Dr. XXXXXXX
I am a college student in XXXXXXX Idaho, USA.
For the past 2-3 months I have been dealing with zits on my face. Most of them are near the mouth region ( above the upper lip below the nose and sometimes on the sides too towards the cheeks)
I wash my face 2-3 times everyday with a mild face wash (phisoderm crem cleanser) and also with phisoderm gel acne cleanser (2% salicylic acid). I helps a little and some times the zits and blemished are gone for a day or two but a new one emerges. What are your recommendations to treat this issue? Thanks

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

My name is Dr. Shoaib Khan and I shall be helping you today with your healthy query. I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

If you do not mind doing so, I request you to attach clear images of the affected region in speaking to our discussion. You should be able to do so on the very same page, or you can send an email to the following address:

While waiting for a response, I would like you to first know that I too had a serious issue with acne during my teenage years and trust me, the more you do for it to clear the worse it gets. The issue is mainly age-related and is due to a surge of hormones at the adolescent age that you are in. Do also know that you have only a few more years to go before they completely clear up, leaving you a handsome young man.

For now, I look forward to hearing from you in order to help you further sir.

Best wishes sir.
