Suggest remedy for acne spots

Hello! Yesterday my 2 of my Acne Scabs fell off when I was in the shower. They were very soft- not thick like nomal ones I've seen. It's left to reveal a big red blotch on each location. Except one is kinda wrinkly. I have put clean and clear advantage acne spot treatment. But I do not know what else to do. Please help me! Thank you!

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have acne spots on skin
which occurs when there are clogged pores of sebaceous gland filled with sebum,dead skin and bacteria get infected . I would suggest you to use face wash containing salicylic acid twice a day and apply cream containing azelaic acid which is natural extract and safe for use. If condition doesn't get better in a month then consult dermatologist again for proper diagnosis and to rule out any underlying condition . Doctor may prescribe isoteritenoin, steroid ointment or antibiotics course. Take Multivitamin supplements. Exfoliate your skin once in a week to remove the dead skin. Apply Adapelene gel once at night.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari

Hi,I m 18, about to be 19, and I have been masturbating for about 2 years now. It started out about once or twice a week, then increased to about 4 or 5 times a week. After a few weeks (maybe 2 or 3 weeks of this schedule), I noticed redness on my cheeks. I decreased my schedule to about 1-3 times a week and even tried to stop completely for a few weeks, but it didn t help. I use prescribed cream from my dermatologist for it (rosacea) but it doesn t completely get rid of the redness. Can you help?
