I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Please stop using this cream as it contains strong steroids which can serious side effects in the long run. Steroid induced acne, photosensitivity, rosacea, atrophy, stretch marks, pigmentation, dryness etc to name a few side effects. Please don't use any such steroid containing fairness creams. You will require treatment to slowly put you off this cream by using some substitute as the skin becomes addicted to the steroid. Hence you are facing such a problem. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

If you develop this type of allergic reaction, it'll occur along the parts of your face that have come into contact with an irritating substance.

I have grade 3 acne with sine red areas on my face. My dermatologist gave me azithromycin, adapalene and brimonidine gel. And also told me to regularly use moisturizer. She told me to apply brimonidine only on the red areas. I did as she told me. But after 3 days for treatment. I have got all red patches exactly where I applied brimonidine gel. And it is persistent. I have been applying moisturiser regularly. I do not know what to do. My doctor told me to use moisturizer every 2 hours for 3 days. Then continue my cream. Is it safe for me to use brimonidine. please help.

Brimonidine is given to treat erythema (redness). Mostly in cases of rosacea to treat flushing/ redness. And usually takes some time to act. If there is no flare up of redness after using brimonidine .u can continue the same with moisturizer. Visit nearest dermatolgist for ny urgency. Thanks.

Dear doctor I have rosacea (redness all over my face and sometimes little pimples), but I also have old deep acne scars and do not know how to treat them. Are treatments that include injections safe for me? Like derma pen or scarlet. P.s I use kiehl's sunscreen for sensitive skin, avene moisturizer, bioderma cleansing and hyaluronic acid.

Hello hope you are keeping safe 1) from your history I take that you are already confirmed with acne rosacea. Please understand that there maybe various factors contributing to this - inflammation - vascular (blood vessel) involvement - hereditary - demodex mites - exposure to uv light (need to avoid) 2) steroidal creams should be avoided for acne as eventhough they lead to initial decrease in the inflammation, it tends to worsen or aggravate the condition in the next weeks. So completely stop the usage of steroids. 3) kindly be adviced to visit the dermatologist so that they can examine you and grade the severity. You may be accordingly put on a course of antibiotics preferably doxycycline, metronidazole gel / azelaic acid cream / tacrolimus ointment for local application. 4) you can also opt for cosmetic procedures such as - vascular laser - intended pulsed light - diathermy - sclerotherapy 5) please follow these measures - avoid hot and spicy food - avoid oil based skin products - protect your self from sun - keep face cool 6) you can continue the products you are using but avoid hyluronic acid until the flare up reduces, as it can irritate the skin also dermabrasion is good but can be avoided during the active phase of rosacea. Hope your query is cleared thank you and take care.

To prevent pimples, eat fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided. Don't peal pimples, as they tend to leave scars. Stop using soap on face. Instead take a spoon of milk, add a pinch of turmeric (haldi). Mix n apply on face with the help of cotton. Leave for a few minutes then wash off. Apply moisturizer like coconut oil. For swollen pimples, gently apply ice for a minute or so. Just don't keep the ice on so long that it irritates your skin. Tea tree oil can kill bacteria. Some people use it to treat minor skin irritations, including acne. There isn't much research on how effective it is, but tea tree oil is safe to put directly on your skin in a diluted form. Try it on a small area first to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction. Simple honey maskbefore applying this mask, rinse your face with warm water to open up pores. Then apply honey and leave it on the skin for 30 minutes. Rinse the honey off with warm water; then rinse again with cold water to close the pores. Yeast and yogurt mask for oily skin oily skin is prone to acne, and this home remedy can reduce excess oil and help clear acne. To make the mask, combine 1 teaspoon of brewer's yeast with a little plain yogurt to create a thin mixture. Apply it thoroughly to all the oily areas and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water; then use cold water to close the pores. For permanent cure you need constitutional medicines, for that I need detailed case history.

Rosacea can have multiple triggering factors like hot beverages, sunlight exposure, sweating, hormonal changes, etc. Treatment depends on stage of rosacea and medicines has to be taken in different phases which can be gradually reduced and stopped. I would suggest you take clear pictures showing affected areas and send the query so that I can check properly and suggest the treatment plan. Also mention if you are allergic to any medicine or have any hormonal issues or if you are taking medicines for some other issues as few medicines can also aggravate rosacea. All the best.
