Acne pimples itch

My daughter is suffering from acne. Her acne is associated with puss and blood. She cannot tolerate and squeezes them out. They get worse during her periods and irresistible itch. Hers is more of a dry skin than oily. The old pimples go away and scars remain. Pimples again develop and new scars are coming on top of them. Her skin has become black spots over white. Please suggest what can be done. She stopped squeezing altogether but still scars are formed. Her skin has black and white heads too.

Skin care needs to be customized based on the presenting complaints. There are different ways to achieve a flawless skin after acne and it needs medical interventions. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequalae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis. Acne scar and pores can be treated with subcision, dermaroller, fractional CO2 lasers, chemical peels and likewise. Remember combining treatment modalities help to achieve desired results earlier. Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results.   Best wishes Dr MK Agarwala New Delhi
