hello reena,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
Looks like you have acne.
Use Cetaphil cleansing lotion if you have dry skin. Use adapelene gel once at night all over the face. Its better to start treatment after a proper consultation with a dermatologist near you.
Avoid using antifungal talc for your problems. Wont help you in anyway.

Dear Reena,

Please visit a dermatologist. This could be anything from acne to pityrosporum folliculitis, depending on which the treatment is going to vary.

You are encouraged to visit the Cosmetology Clinic on Wednesdays at CMC Vellore.

Hi, I have a problem that has persisted for a few weeks now, the first symptoms started of with excessive sweating through the soles of my feet, that has progressed to dehydration with the skin on hands and face drying out and peeling within a few hours of going to sleep and headaches. I also have bleeding from my intestines, occasional pain in the upper right on my stomach area. I m unsure if this is related; I also have a intensely painful and itchy rash that usually keeps appearing on my left forearm for 30minutes ~ 1hour, and sometimes insomnia.
