Hi! alexander007alex,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

There are lot of creams available in the market for acne right from over the counter(OTC) medicine to prescribed medicines.I wouldn't recommend you any OTC preparation because they don't have any good effect .For prescribed medicines you need to consult a dermatologist .Commonly used medicines are clindamycin ,adapelene ,nadifloxacin creams etc.If acne is sever then you also need oral tablets .Along with this you should use anti acne soaps daily,avoid use of moisturizers on face or any oily stuff on face and never squeeze your pimples.

regards,
Dr.chawda

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.
