I have too much black and whiteheads on my nose and chin. I am a 27 years old lady with a 3 years old baby. I am facing this issue when I was 12 years old and now it is increasing day by day. After the pregnancy it idms very frequent like if I clean them by scrubbing it is again coming back on the 3rd day itself. Is there any treatment to get rid of this permanently? This is very annoying. Is it for excessive androgenic hormones in my body? I do not have a very sweet voice like a lady and small boobs (not ideal after having a 3 years old baby)

Dear lybrate-user you are suffering from acne due to hormonal imbalance. Other reason is excess production of oil, diet,and stress. You can apply clindamycin based cream day time and benzoyl peroxide based cream with moisturizer at night time with some care. If this does not relieve you can send me photos of the affected area for accurate diagnosis and treatment. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hi I am 28 years old female. I have been applying betnovate c weekly three four times on face for whiteheads since 5,6 years. My skin used to look radiant next day. Now my skin is used to applying betnovate c. If I do not apply at least once in a week, my skin looks rough. How should I handle this?

Sterioids are a double edged weapon in the treatment of skin diseases. Used judiciouly, under the supervision of a dermatologist for short periods of time, they can work wonders. However I note that you have been using very high potency steroid for a very long period of time. This long use of steriods will cause thinning of the skin and damage. As you have said, it is difficult to stop the steroids, becuase there will be some rebound problems. However the correct course of treatment would be that you stop steroid completely- I know that it will be a tough time for you, as your skin starts looking rough. But after a certain period of time (few months) we can get you a better skin than what you started with. You could consult with me online on Lybrate as a private consult, and I can follow up with your photos and advise you step by step what to do.

You can apply aloe vera juice/gel from its leaf (fresh), not from ready made gels available in market. Remove skin of an aloe vera leaf. Take /scoop out gel. Apply this gel to your face skin. Wash with plain water after an hour. 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. Use some sunblock with spf (at least 50) every time you go out in sun. Apply it 30 mins before going out use umbrella when going in sun. Wear full sleeves clothsdrink plenty of fluids.--very important for healthy skindon’t be stressed. For more details consult online.

1.Toothpaste-- you just apply a thin layer of toothpaste on the affected area and leave it dry for 25 minutes, then rinse it. You are advised to do that every two days and maintain this work during two weeks. 2.Lemon-- to remove blackheads on the nose with lemon, you can apply one of the three following methods: you wash your face with lukewarm water before applying a mixture of one lemon juice with a little salt on the nose. Then, you leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing the face skin with lukewarm water. You mix 2 tablespoons of oatmeal, 3 tablespoons of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Then, you stir the mixture to apply to the nose. After that, you wait 5 to 7 minutes before cleaning the face with water. You blend lemon juice with cinnamon powder and apply them to the nose and keep it overnight. 3.Oatmeal-- you simply mix oatmeal and rose water to create the glutinous flour. You use the hands to spread it on the nose or the entire face. About 15 minutes later, you wash the face with water. You will feel that the skin in this area become smoother and brighter. You should apply this method several times a week to quickly remove blackheads. 4.Rice water-- you soak rice in fresh milk or cold water for 5 hours, then put it to the grinder and wait until the rice, water, and milk combine with each other to form a dense mixture which is then applied to the nose. When it becomes dry, you remove the mask from the nose and clean the nose with water. 5.Coriander-- to have a mask made from coriander, you need to pick a wisp of fresh coriander that is mixed with water to grind finely. Then, you blend this mixture with 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and put it on the nose. After waiting 15 minutes, you clean the nose thoroughly. It is suggested to do that every day so that blackheads will be swept away. Coriander juice is mixed with lemon juice in the same proportion. Then, you apply the solution to the nose or the affected skin. Then, you leave it for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse the face thoroughly. 6.Honey-- the simplest way to treat blackheads is to gently rub the honey to the nose and the affected area. You leave it for about 15 minutes before cleaning the face with water. Another way is to blend 1 teaspoon of honey with 1 teaspoon of aloe vera juice to spread on the blackheads. 15 minutes later, you rinse with lukewarm water.

Yes. Whitehead, acne or pimples. Due to hormonal changes. Oily skin causes it. Common in adolescent age. May occur in adults also. Food like oily foods, ice cream, chocolate and sweets increase it. Treatment depends on the grade of pimples or acne. So, please send photos by direct online consultation as it's a must to see which grade of pimples or acne for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
