Have Acne, using Phisohex, no relief. Is it right medicine for Acne?

i am using phisohex which was prescribed by a local dermatologist to treat my acne which i consider to be mild to severe. I ve seen some noticeable changes in the past 5 months that i ve been using it but i keep getting more breakouts lately. Could it be related to diet or sun exposure? And is this acne product effective for my treatment of acne? I would also like something for the black marks left by acne. Thanks.

Hi Josh,
Hexachlorophene is basically a disinfectant. I would rather advice you to use more skin friendly and acne specific products to treat acne. Use a salicylic acid based face wash and a water based moisturiser. Use topical antiacne creams like clindamycin/benzoyl peroxide/adapalene gel etc over acne lesions. If the need be oral antiacne therapy can also be started to treat acne. I would suggest you to fix an appointment with an expert dermatologist. Merely using phisohex would not help. It is as good as using dettol or savlon to keep your skin acne free. Take care.
