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

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.
