Stop using it at once .Dear patient, it's important to have a dual mode of action for such conditions. Aim should be to prevent new pimples from erupting and to dry the older ones simultaneously so that they don't leave any scar and dark spots. Though dark spots can be managed later on, it's very difficult to treat the scars because of acne and the worst part of acne is that most of them leave a scar or pigmentation when heal. Aim is to constrict the glands which is making the secretions on which bacteria find a good medium to multiply. Some patients also have acne on their arms shoulders and back and respond well to systemic treatment along with creams for local application. Lasers also can be done in severe cases and sometimes patient mostly female need some special drugs. So peels along with anti acne medication and oral tablets may help you out. It may take 4-6 weeks to get a proper control over them and according to the results we have to manage the drugs. We try to minimise the use of drugs through latest technology and treatment modalities.

I do brush daily two time in day. But after sometime mouth taste is change .taste change in to matilic. I do not understand that why change.

Its good that you brush twice but even brushing multiple times will not remove the causative agents once they are adhered to tooth surface (tartar, plaque,calculus). So you visit a dentist and get ultrasonic scaling and polishing done (remember it has no substitute, no home remedies, learn proper brushing technique by the dentist, use Listerine mouthwash twice daily. Clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner on daily basis. See the best results afterwards. I assumed that you are not taking any antibiotics, any tobacco related habit which can cause altered taste and bad smell.

What shampoo you are using. Try to use low chemical shampoo. Oiling your scalp is good thing but do use excess oil because to remove oil you need more shampoo that can damage your hairs.

For people with severe acne oral retinoids helps control sebum production and pimples. You may need actibiotics to control active acne like oral doxycycline and local clindamycin creams. Once the acne is under control then you can start treatment for pimple marks which may be pigmentation or scars. There are various treatments for acne scars which include creams, chemical peels, microdermaabrasion, microneedling, radiofrequency, surgery, fat fill laser etc. Creams work only for superficial pigmentation not for scars. You can start initially on milder depigmentation creams which contain kojic acid, arbutin, niacinamide like Melaglow at night and use sunscreen three times a day. And depending on type of skin whether oily or dry you can choose a face wash. It need examination and personalized plan. You can consult in private with photographs.
