Hello doctor,

I have pimples, red, and brown spots on the face. Moderate acne. Mainly on chin, cheeks, sides of the nose and between eyebrows. Is it hormonal acne? How do I fix it? Large pores on the face but dehydrated, sensitive skin. Red pimples with white pus. Varies from large to small sizes. Leaves large brown acne scars that still have not faded. Not painful but sensitive to touch and harsh acne treatments. After changing products, the face is irritated and red, and the skin feels sticky. Combination skin, with oil on T-zone. Acne mainly on the chin area. Is it hormonal acne? How do I fix it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your query. With your description, it seems you have developed grade 2 to 3 acne. See acne concentrated over chin indicate hormonal acne. If you can share a few pictures, it will be helpful in exact grading of acne, which further leads to proper treatment. You can use 1 % Clindamycin gel during the morning and use 3.5 % Microbenz gel during the night. Use face care face wash twice daily. Not to use oily spicy foods and junk foods, take lots of water daily which will hydrate your skin.

 

Hi doctor,

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have examined your given pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Your acne is more concentrated over chin it indicates you have some hormonal acne. Please get hormones profile. Besides above-mentioned cream, you may need an oral tablet too. Take tablet Azithromycin 250 mg for three consecutive days in a week for four weeks after consulting your GP or near by dermatologist.
