My acne is getting worse. The spots are on my face, back and chest. I have had the spots for about two years now. How can I remove the spots from my face?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your concern.
Use a salicylic acid facewash twice daily and apply Benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the pimples on the face twice daily and Benzoyl peroxide 10 percent gel on the pimples present on the chest and back twice daily. Along with this take a course of tablet Azithromycin 500 mg daily for three consecutive days in a week for six weeks.
Besides this keep your face dry, avoid applying oily creams and moisturizers, avoid oiling of the scalp, use cosmetics labeled as noncomedogenic and reduce the intake of sugary foods. Continue this for six weeks and revert back.
Seborrhea and hormonal imbalance.Probable diagnosis:
Acne vulgaris.Regarding follow up:
After six weeks.
