Hi...dear Streidha... Maryeden..,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
ACNE VULGARIS...common in this age..,
due to hyperactivity of hormones...intake of oily food, stress& strain..,
exaggerated the condition...
So 1) Frequent washes with Triclosan soap..,
2) Take low oily diet....plenty of green leafy vegetables..
and fresh fruits...,
3) Tab..Azithromycin 250 mg for 3 days..,
4) Tab..Isotretinoin...10 mg for 30 days..,
5) Topically aplly 1% Clindamycin 2 times daily for 30 days..,
ok...good luck..
