Hi Saeed, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

Acne [pimples] & blackheads are very common problems. Please do as follows:
1] Apply Adapelene 0.1% daily at night
2] Wash your face with a good, simple soap 2-3 times a day
3] Use a good sunscreen lotion in daytime.
These are initial, & simple measures & you will see effects in 3-4 weeks. Wishing you best of health.

I was on Yasmin birth control for about 16 years and decided to stop taking it a couple of months ago. This is actually the third time I've stopped over the years because each time I do, I get a bumpy rash behind my ears, on the side of my neck, and on my forehead. It doesn't appear as normal acne does and progressively gets worse and itches. Why would this be happening each time I stop?

Hi, I have been using otocomb ointment on some acne sores on my face now for about 4 years. It ususally clears them up in a couple of days and I just use this every 2nd night on the spots only. But I think it is causing some pigmentation problems on my face now. Could this be the cause of it? Thanks

Hi there, I started taking birth control May 2012 and I stopped taking in November 2013. In March 2013 I noticed a lump above my right breast. In July 2013 I had it removed for precautionary measures. I decided in November 2013 that I would stop taking it. This year, starting in February till now, I have had many issues with acne/cystic acne around my mouth/jawline. I am debating to go back on the pill to help with this acne, however, I do not want to get another lump (in case that was what caused the first one). Please advise.
