Dermatologist 's  Response

thanks for using healthcare magic.
i will be glad to be of assistance.

from your description it does seem like acne. if you can send me a photo it would be helpful.

in case you cannot, i would recommend that you treat yourself for acne and see if that helps.

hope you have not been picking up on any of the lesions as that will lead to deep scars and pigmentation.

you need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen , creams daily.

cleanse your face with cetaphil cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.

sunscreen needs to be used daily , neutrogena would be a good choice.

only if you have active lesions, then you need to apply these creams :-

clindamycin gel on the active acne lesions in the morning and Retin A 0.025% cream at night on the entire face.

Retinoic acid cream 0.025% needs to be applied only at night, start with coming it for 2 hours and then gradually increase the time interval to keep it overnight.

also a course of tab. doxycycline 100 mg once a day would be beneficial. you can take it for a month.


please let me know if you have any queries.
