Hi Lybrate-user! acne or pimples is an age related skin problem which has ups and downs of the lesions. Depending on the diet which you take, acne will be under your control. Pleas don't touch your pimples with your hands as it can cause spots and can aggravate pimples also. Reduce oily foods, sweets ,chocolates, non vegetarian foods like red meat, chicken ,eggs, dairy products as these foods can aggravate acne. Coming to the actual question, you can use benzoxyl gel or adapalene gel to control breakouts. You can do private online consult and show your skin pics and chat such that you can a better solution. Please don't worry ,as most of them suffer pimples in this age and get a clear skin if they follow instructions and medication.

Hi! acne is disease of oil glands inflammation which is under of hormonal fluctuations, dietary changes ,lifestyles modifications, stress. Usually in the age of 35 years acne can be because of underlying hormone imbalances like thyroid and pcod. Please check your hormones to treat acne from root cause. Once hormonal fluctuations are ruled out ,femcinol app gel can clear the acne in around 3 months. Reduce diet rich in high glycemic index like sweets and chocolates, cut down dairy products, oily foods and non vegetarian foods for better results.

Hi! usually azaelic acid creams work well for treating pimple spots. Use sunscreen in the morning for best results. Acne is a disease of oil gland inflammation with relapses and remissions especially in the age of 13 to 23. Please do post your pics for better treatment and guidance. Other procedures like chemical peeling, laser toning ,microdermabrasion also can treat scars and spots at a faster rate.

Hi lybrate-user! most of the times, spots will respond to azaelic acid creams. But be sure to start the cream at night along with sunscreen application in the morning. Your skin seems to sensitive ,better you use mild cleanser to prevent from dryness and redness. Many procedures like chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, lasers etc can treat you better and give good results. Please do post pics or consult online for getting good guidance and treatment.

It can be because of dermatitis/ eczema or allergy or dryness or fungal infection or psoaiasis etc. I need details of case n preferably pics of affected area. In the meanwhile follow this moisturize frequently. Avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity. Avoid sweating or overheating. Reduce stress. Avoid scratchy materials, such as wool directly in contact with skin. Avoid harsh soaps, detergents, and solvents. Be aware of any foods that may cause an outbreak and avoid those foods. For this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details you can consult me.

Hi! you can use any good ketoconozole based shampoo. As per Lybrate rule, doctors are not supposed to suggest brand names on this platform expect for private consultation. Coming to benzoyl peroxide, it is good for acne. Age not mentioned. Acne common in adult and adolescent age. Control sweets, choclates,dairy products, non vegetarian foods to control acne. You should reduce weight also for acne to control.

Can I use diluted dettol antiseptic (5-6 drops in 650 ml of plain water) on my face daily? Would this help me with mild acne I tried this for 3 days I guess it works. And will this make my skin dark?

Hi lybrate-user! probably a very diluted quantity of dettoll did not harm your skin as of now. But on a long run will definitely harm your skin and cause irritant dermatitis. Please stop using that. Many anti acne gels like adapalene ,benzoyl peroxide gel, clindamycin gel etc can be more beneficial to your skin.

Hey lybrate-user you shouldn't be using diluted dettol. Dettol can be very harmful for the skin sometimes in the form irritant reactions and the skin of your face is very gentle. So it's better not to take any chances. Rather there should be usage of proper anti acne medication as per your need.

I am sorry to hear about your concern, but I will be happy to assist you. Razor burn, or shaving rash, is a skin irritation that can be caused by dry shaving; shaving too aggressively; or shaving with dull blades. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.
