Dear Sagar

Wash your face regularly, if possible with soap
Wearing a helmet is good, however the humidity inside the helmet might worsen your problem
You can try a salicylic acid based face wash too
try benzoyl peroxide on the pimples that appear twice daily

All the best

hi, i used to get pimples when I was 16 and I am 24 now and still get them though the number of pimples has decreased since then and I have few pimples in cheeks and tend to get some pimples in forehead sometimes. I also have blackheads in my nose. I have consulted 3 dermatologist so far and followed their medications but the results are not that satisfying. I saw changes when I started using glintra gel, aziderm cream and chemical peeling (SM peel, Vedaderm) in every 15 days. I noticed that all my pimples were gone after I did chemical peeling 6 times but after I stopped doing that peeling or I dont know what is the reason, I am getting pimples. When I said about this to my dermatologiet, He said that I have to do peeling forever and I dont want to do this and it is quite expensive too. I want to have my pimples and blackheads in my nose removed permanently. Please suggest that helps to remove pimples permanently.

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.
