hi. I am 21 yrs old. I am having an acne problem on my face and on my back. the pimples are increasing day by day. My face started looking so bad and the pimples on my back pains a lot when they got filled with the pus. plz suggest me what should I do.
Understanding your concern. As per your query you have acne on face and back which occurs due to stress, anxiety, clogged pores of skin with dead bacteria, sleeplessness ,drugs like steroids and oily food. Need not to worry. you should use face wash such as neutrogena oil free. Apply Adapelene gel once at night. Also wash your face with mild soap and cold water twice a day , exfoliate your face once a week , apply aloe vera gel and apply azelaic acid containing cream twice a day. Take antibiotic like azithromycine 500 mg. If condition doesn't improve in a month then consult dermatologist for proper evaluation. Doctor may prescribe hydroquinone cream , retinoids or recommend procedures like laser therapy and dermabrassion.
Hope your concern has been resolved.
Get Well Soon. Best Wishes, Dr. Harry Maheshwari
