Chronic acne
I have been suffering from acne since the last 10yrs. It comes and goes but never a totally clear skin. Recently i consulted a dermatologist again and he prescribed me lymecyclin 1st for 20 days along with tretinoin ointment and then again 1month.tretinoin gave me irritation and so i was switched to benzyol peroxide gel. The bigger pimples disappeared but i started having very small pimples all over my forehead. I was prescribed doxy for 1 month and lacne gel but after completion of doxy those small pimples came back again. I shifted from that city so couldn't go back to him again. Now i have those on my forehead,between my eyebrows,upper lips and chin. Currently my skin care regime is ayurvedic orange-aloe vera face wash,oriflame pure skin toner, dew soft premia moisturizer and sometimes sugar honey scrub and lotus herbals clay face pack.

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 and commitment on part of the patient. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequelae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. An attempt to find out the root cause of acne should be made in every patient or else it keeps recurring. Each phase takes a couple of weeks before we move to the next phase of treatment. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis. Acne scar and pores can be treated with subcisions, 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.
