I have been suffering from acne since 10 years. However 5 years ago I started using steroidal creams on it. It used to control it but not cure. Then last November I stopped using it. But I developed small red dry bumps on cheeks and chin. Rough areas where dry and red. Doc said rosacea. Its been 6 months now, I use oil and aloe vera only on face. I just suddenly get red bumps I just wanted to know, is this curable? As I asked few doctors. They said it is, bit it requires time and positive treatment and thinking. Is it curable?

Thanks for the query. Skin care is a daily ritual shaped by age, gender, socioeconomic status and internal health. 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. **Please don't use steroids on face without medical supervision or advice Best wishes Dr MK Agarwala
