Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Your clinical images (attachment removed to protect patient identity) are suggestive of really a bad grade three to four nodulocystic acne with a lot of infection.
The redness you have developed is because of applying Mometasone which is a steroid.
This will take at least six to eight weeks of regular treatment and a good skin care for improvement.
Before I can even start on any creams, I suggest you need a two-week course of antibiotics to reduce the infection.
I suggest you the following:
- Sunstop SPF 30 (micronized zinc oxide and octinoxate) lotion for the whole face every morning.
- Clindac A gel (Clindamycin Topical) for application over the pimples at night.
- Tablet Pan (Pantoprazole) 40 mg once daily 15 minutes before breakfast.
- Capsule Doxy (Doxycycline) 100 mg twice daily after food for two weeks. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the above medicines.
Review after two weeks with fresh images to assess the response.
