Suggest Remedy For Acne Problem

hi, I am 22 yrs old and suffering from acne from last 6-7 yrs old. Earlier i visited Dermatologist but it helped partially. the marks never faded and 2-3 pimples occurred regularly. but from last 2 months the pimples have increased in number and this time few small lumps have also formed. My Dermatologist has prescribed me 4 medicines. Biotin and Mineral Tablets, Fudic BNF Cream, Zathrin 250 mg tablets and Brevoxyl. Are these useful for acne and it marks ?

Hello,

Thank you for posting on HealthcareMagic.

I appreciate your concern regarding Acne and i will try to answer your queries in best possible way.

Acne, as you must be aware is a pretty common condition affecting majority of teenagers.
It is caused chiefly due to hormonal influence and clogging of pores and followed by infection and inflammation.

It has tendency for recurrence and complications like pigmentation and scarring, thus mandates proper treatment at the earliest.

Treatment usually depends on severity of of acne and for the accurate grading you need a proper examination by a dermatologist or atleast you can share your pics in a direct question, so i can advise you in a better way.
I am sorry to say but the treatment you have been prescribed is not up to the mark and it has topical steroid which is usually not prescribed for acne.
Usually I advise proper course of oral antibiotics (Azithromycin etc) with or without oral isotretinoin for few months. Additionally, I advise use of a cream containing nadifloxacin/clindamycin twice day and a gel containing benzoyl peroxide and adapalene for few months. This combination of benzoyl peroxide and adapalene is one of the recent advances in the treatment of acne and has wonderful results if used in a right way. Your local doctor will know about these drugs.

Apart from home-based treatment, I also advise procedures like chemical peeling and laser and light therapy for patients having severe acne and associated complications like pigmentation and scarring.

Use good quality face wash and a moisturizer on regular basis.

Avoid junk food as far as possible and include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.

Hope this will take care of your condition.

I would suggest you to share your pictures in a direct question and if you wish to contact me in future for any question kindly use the following link:
