Hi. Benzoyl peroxide creamy wash is good in tackling pimples on the back. An azelaic acid based cream may be used to tackle the dark spots after a thorough consultation with the dermatologist.

Use clear gel at night. Acne or pimples is due to oily skin. Few hormonal changes also causes. Certain food items like ice-cream, chocolate, sweets also increases it. For the treatment of acne or pimples we grade it depends on the type of skin lesions. As the treatment protocol varies depending on the grade. So, I definitely need photos of your face for proper diagnosis and treatment. Do online direct consultation or meet me in my clinic for effective treatment stratergy.

Tablets will also be required for acne in the starting of the treatment. Please don't self treat without prescription. All issue effects happen if patient self treats without doctor's advice. Please call me or send photos using online consult option for proper examination diagnosis and treatment advice.

You have to give more details as to why these were given to you Liquid paraffin is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It cannot be dissolved in water or alcohol, but it can be dissolved in organic solvents. It is also known as mineral oil. Liquid paraffin is used to make cleansing creams, cold creams, hair oils and beauty lotions. The benzoyl peroxide is medication used to treat mild to moderate acne. It may be used in combination with other acne treatments. When applied to the skin, benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria and by causing the skin to dry and peel.

Apply very little cream only on the pimples. If you apply more it will irritate your skin and cause side effects.
