Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Pimples are very common in this age group due to hormonal changes. Whenever you do try to squeeze out them with your nails then they damage cells near vicinity of the pimples, and these dead cells causes black, brown or red discoloration. You should avoid to squeeze out them.


Treatment plan:

1. Wash your face by Patanjali Saundarya face wash and apply Himalaya Clarina anti-acne cream twice a day.
2. Orally you should take Himalaya Purim tablet one tablet thrice a Baidyanath Raktashodhak Vati 1 tablet twice a day after meals.

Preventive measures:

1. Avoid spicy and fried junk foods.
2. Quit smoking and drinking if you have these habits.
3. Drink plenty of water.
4. Do regular kapalbhati, Mandukasana, and Ardhamatsyendrasana as well as pranayamas like anuloma vilom Nadi sodhan and bhramari.
