Hello doctor,

I moved to a new place and started getting acne on my cheeks and chin. I also got some pimples on my chest and back. What can be the reason? I already had acne-prone skin but it was under control here it is getting worse.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I read your query and understand your concern. Please do not worry. It seems to be due to some hormonal disturbance due to lack of exercise, consumption of oily spicy foods, or lack of proper sleep. Do not depend on medication only.

  1. Wake up early and go for a morning walk regularly till there is good sweating.
  2. Do yoga and pranayam regularly.
  3. Take more salads and fruits.
  4. Avoid oily spicy foods and non-vegetarian foods for a few months.

Talk to your specialist doctor, talk to them, and take the medications after their consent.

  1. Take a capsule of Doxt-SL (Doxycycline and Lactobacillus) twice daily on the first day, one per day for 14 days.
  2. Take two tablets of Purim (neem and turmeric) or Amypure (Daruharidra, Guduchi, Neem, and Chirayata) thrice a day for 12 weeks.
  3. Use a herbal face wash regularly.
  4. Apply Glamour cream (Aloe Vera, Chamomilla, Vitamin B3, and E).

Follow up after three weeks.

Thank you.
