Dermatologist 's  Response

thanks for posting your query.

nmfe cream can cause pimples as a moisturizer will increase oiliness on the skin. you can stop it.

you can use cetaphil cleansing lotion thrice a day for cleansing your face.

emolene cream is the right moisturizer for you. it wont cause pimples.

to treat the acne use clindamycin gel twice a day on the pimples and tretinoin cream once at night on the whole face.

Hi aruna. It does appear the soaps you are using are comedogenic & YOUR ACNE IS GETTING WORSE. It is imperative you visit a 'dermatologist' as am not certain the doctor you visited was a dermatologist. If so, please get a second opinion. These things are difficult to address online & needs a 'visual ' assessment. If you let me know where you are from, then i will be hapy to suggest a good dermatologist near you. In the interim please try a mild 2.5% benzyl peroxide wasjh or an over the counter acne deep pore cleanser from neutrogena & leave it on your face for 5-10mts. Cheers & hope this information helps you get better soon.
