How to cure Acne Problem?

I have joined the band guys it’s been 5 months now and my face is scared as a battle field, with blood oozing out at will, and pus from eruptions, and pits where the war soldiers died (my normal skin). Can anyone suggest me something for now? You need to start some sort of a treatment pal else you are starring down the barrel, wash your face regularly, and apply turmeric, lime juice, multani mitti paste regularly in the night.

use brevoxyl face wash...3 times a day...azee tablets before breakfast..eat properly...avoid oily food
Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suyash Patankar's  Response
acne can be treated with local applications of cremes, some antibiotics, retinoids and LASERs.
LASER though expensive ( costs upto 5,000/- ), can clear the face off active acne and acne scars. The results are quite dramatic and patients simply love their skin after LASERs

It sounds like cystic acne. You might need Medicine like Roaccutane (similar to Vitamin A) but it has some precautions and side effects. Works wonderfully. A dermatologist can confirm the exact medication and dosage. Do not apply any commercial soaps, try not to touch and dig these acne. Drink plenty of water during daytime. Exercise a little (not too heavy or too much), eat healthy fruits and salads (avoid mangoes and other fruits with very high natural sugars). Avoid fried foods, chocolates, red meats until these acne are fixed, then decide if you want to occasionally consume these or give up. Good Luck.

For good results, please go to a reliable and known dermatologist.I had been to Dr. Batra's homeopathic clinic and the whole problem started there.First of all, it was expensive and beyond that I was not getting any benefit.I was simultaneously getting treated for hair loss problem also.None of them worked in homeopathy.I also tried some home rememedy but it did not show any result.You should be abale to find an experieneced dermat in your city or town.

My friend just had a stent placed in her kidney today because she had blockage that was not allowing it to drain properly.She is in a large amount of pain and discomfort,mostly due to the fact that it burns when she urinates.I had the same procedure done a little less than a year ago and was prescribed Prosed DS to alleviate the problem.She has no known drug allergies.I'm curious as to what the reasoning could be behind only giving her antibiotics and nothing for the burning or pain.

Thank you for your input. I will 62 in September & of course had the Chicken Pox... :) Should i get the Shingles Vaccine ?
