Treatments For Acne Under The Skin

Donald asks…

Best treatment for “under the skin” acne?

Please don’t bother answering if you don’t have experience with “under the skinacne or even know what I mean by that!

The little skin colored bumps that almost look like a rash all over cheeks, forehead, sometimes chest. If you have had this, have you found a good treatment for it, (preferably not meds) some sort of skin care system that has worked to eliminate these acne bumps?

Thanks!

admin answers:

For under the skin acne, you may need to use an oral medication. The acne is embedded in your skin because of the internal bacteria that topical acne medications cannot (alone) target. An oral medication (tetracycline or doxycycline – your dermatologist would choose based on your body type and medical history) would kill that bacteria completely. Oral medications (antibiotics) would take roughly 2 months to begin working and would still need to be used with a good topical cleanser, medication and moisturizer to clear out the surface bacteria.

Thomas asks…

Does Compeed work on under-skin acne?

admin answers:

It might help a little. Acne requires a multi-faceted approach. If you have acne clean your skin gently, ry not to touch your skin when your hands are not clean, and avoid the sun.

The three basics of acne treatment are to (1) unclog pores, (2) kill bacteria, and (3) minimize oil. Use mild exfoliating cleansers to unclog your pores. Use benzoyl peroxide to kill the bacteria. Get rid of oil on the surface of your skin by using a gentle toner. Generally drug store brands will do each of these things well. You don’t need to spend a fortune.

These are all good basic skin regimens that may help with the acne battle:

Cleanse twice daily with a 5% benzoyl peroxide wash. An alternative for those who are allergic to benzoyl peroxide is 2% salicylic acid.

Apply a gel or cream containing 5% benzoyl peroxide; an alternative is sulfur or resorcinol.

At night, apply a spot cream containing sulfur to the affected areas.

Use a light skin moisturizer and oil-free makeup.

If you try all these approaches and it still does not seem to work, it is time to consult your doctor. You may need a prescription medication approach to deal with your acne.

And read the information at these sites. You may find other ideas that will help you.

Ruth asks…

Chin acne deep under skin?

The lady at MAC said chin acne is from stress…is this true? I hate the way my chin looks, the rest of my face is fine! How do i get rid of acne thats deep under my skin? (chin) prom is comming in may and i am desperate! i just bought Boots Sensitive Toner today hopefully that works….thank you

admin answers:

Don’t touch your face (chin), especially if you’re leaning your chin on your hand to hold your head up. Doing so will spread the acne-causing bacteria.

From my understanding (I do not use it myself – I have my own acne-fighting regimen with which I’ve been very successful), acne medications with a 10% benzoyl peroxide are the strongest OTC meds for acne. You can look for the type that is considered spot treatment, which means you put it directly on the blemish, not on your entire face.

I hope whatever you decide to try works for you. If you would like to know my regimen, send me either a message or an email, and I will be happy to send it to you. (And just so you know, it won’t cost you anything except for the time it takes you to read it.)

Get Rid Of Acne In A Week

George asks…

how to get rid of acne on your forehead really fast like in a few weeks please i need help?

admin answers:

Sorry, You can’t get rid of acne in the matter of afew weeks sorry :/ Wish that was the case though… But anyways

I can totally relate to your problem, and theres certainly alot of people in the same situation…

I used to have really bad Acne from the age of like 13, all the way till about 11 months ago (Im 17 now btw, 18 now month). I tried everything….. Creams……. Tablets….. Face washes, Natural products.. EVERYTHING… They just don’t work at all…

So I heard about this treatment, It’s called Roaccutane (Also known as accutane), I started on that when I was 15, and finished within about about 6-10months of treatment. Basically it’s a tablet which you will have to take every night at regular times for the whole period of time, The Dossage of the tablet depends on the weight of you… But I would certainly reccomend going your GP or doctors and ask them to refer you over to a dermatologist unit at a local hospital, and they will more than likely suggest it to you there anyways. It’s actually really good. At first, the acne may flare out more, but this is getting them all out your system, then it will gradually get better overtime. Just search up about it on google, and also on Youtube, people have like posted video blogs about each week of treatment on it.. It’s a very “Controlled” treatment though I must say.. No drinking alcohol in that period of time, Regular monthly blood checks to check colestrol levels etc etc… And theres side effects too… Dry lips.. Nose bleeds on the odd occasions… Dry skin… Dry eyes, other dry areas.. :L But you can be prescribed with things to sort those problems out, and they only last until you have finished the treatment.

Trust me it is well worth it, my Acne used to be so bad, and now I have no spots on my face at all. Anyways hope this helps and best of luck to you :)

How To Get Rid Of Acne In 1-3 Days or A Week?

Ok so i have acne but its not that bad i only have it on the forhead i think its because i have bangs ; i went to the docter and he said its the beginning from acne and he gave me something but it doesnt help !!! So how do i get rid of my acne ?? Im scared to go to school with pimples so yeaa !! It has to be fast !!!!

admin answers:

Hi Cheyenne!
I’m a mother of two and i have a 14 year old daughter who has severe acne. She’s always begging me, to buy her acne products. I didn’t want to waste my money and her to throw any acne treatments away so i did a little research. I went to each acne product website that i knew and all of them got many negative reviews. I couldn’t find anymore acne websites, so i searched some more. I finally came across one called AcneFree. They are much more affective than Proactiv! I went to the drugstore the next week and found AcneFree. I remembered it from the week before and gave my daughter a severe 24 hour acne wash kit. It was a little cheaper than Proactiv. I don’t live in america, so the price for Proactiv is $50.00. AcneFree was $29.99 for the severe acne kit. The other kits; sensitive, and moderate are both $19.99. When i got home i showed my daughter the acne kit. I told her to follow each and every step of what it said. She said it was simple. I told her to wash both morning and night. The next day when i woke her up for school i already saw results in her face! Her pimples weren’t as red as they were. I was very excited to see the clearer skin of my daughter again. She thanked me and told me she would use them everyday. It’s been about a month and my daughter’s skin is shiny and fully clean. She has no more pimples, and i really do think AcneFree is the best acne medication i’ve ever seen, that’s really cheap.

Acne Treatments That Work

Lisa asks…

cystic acne treatment?

which is the best cystic acne treatment available?

admin answers:

For cystic acne treatment there are various alternatives available, which includes homemade natural remedies, antibiotic drugs and homeopathic cures but not work so amazingly as FitoDerm. For a clean clear acne skin an organized treatment approach is needed.

To eliminate acne
cyst, 3 good treatment alternatives available are Allopathic, Homeopathic and Natural home cures. All the 3 alternatives are explained briefly below:

A) Allopathic : Antibiotic medications will be in the type of topical solution or oral doses. There are various medications that could be bought otc. Topical antibiotic drugs like Retinol or Benzoyl Peroxide assist in getting rid of the bacterial infection in the pores and hair follicles. Oral cystic acne treatment in the primary form could comprise of Doxycycline, Erythromycin or Tetracycline. Nonetheless prior to beginning whatever medicine it’s crucial to empathize the side effects.

If Cystic acne is serious, normal antibiotic drugs might not clear the problem. You may be prescribed Accutane for serious cystic acne remedy. This is a really effectual antibiotic, which clears the cystic acne inducing bacterial infection. Nevertheless this drug does have lot of fallouts, which might be in the form of clinical depression, faulty baby in pregnant women, headaches, and joint pains amongst numerous other fallouts.

B) Homeopathic : Homeopathic cures that are prescribed frequently for cystic acne treatment are Arnica and or Silicea. Since it’s thought that Homeopathic medications address the root cause of the problem and not the consequence, homeopathic treatment could in reality be effective to eliminate acne cyst. Nonetheless one had better take these medicines through a homeopathic doctor only.

C) Natural Home cures: Some of the effective natural home cures for Cystic acne remedy are:

1) Pulp of fruits like orange and grapefruit, which comprise salicylic acid, is very effective cystic acne remedy. The juice from the pulp requires to be drained and the pulp could and then be used to the skin directly.

2) A spread created by combining turmeric, sandalwood and Neem is also an effective cystic acne remedy since turmeric has anti-bacterial attributes and assists in clearing cystic acne.

3) Other natural cures for skin acne like tea Aloe Vera juice and tree oil could be of use for modest kind of cystic acne.

William asks…

Type of acne treatment?

What’s a good acne treatment , like to remove pimples , black heads ,zits & stuff like that ?

admin answers:

To know the type of acne treatment best for you, you need to determine the severity of your skin condition. There are several kinds of acne treatment for getting rid of pimples and blackheads. The severity of your acne will also play a role on the most effective way to get rid of zits. If your acne problem is not too bad then simple household items such as toothpaste and garlic can also be used for mild cases of acne. Over the counter product like astrigents and creams can be used to help dry out the more moderate cases of pimples.

If you suffer from severe acne then natural home products or over the counter acne treatments may not work. In this case you may want to visit a dermatologist for an evaluation on your situation. Acne laser treatment has also been used in some cases to help sufferers clear their skin. Something like that should be considered a last resort. There are many natural ways to help get rid of acne and I recommend looking into those methods first.

HELP. how can I make my pimple go away?

I popped a pimple and It turned worse it looks like a volcano and I have school tomorrow. Is there any way I can reduce the redness or make it smaller over night? Please help

admin answers:

There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up! :)

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts.

“Non-comedogenic” products are best for your skin. Non-comedogenic simply means they will not make your face break out more. They won’t have a scent or any other harmful ingredients.

You can’t go wrong with washing your face…
Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide

Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.

Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.

Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…

Http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Acne-Treatment

I prefer to use natural products myself. Tea Tree oil has been proven to work as well as Benzoyl Peroxide with less side effects. Although it takes longer to show results. It isn’t for everyone!

Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://goo.gl/rnCk1

Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!

Http://m.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Acne

Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.

To even skin tone and also fight acne I use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion at 10% strength, 3 times a week. It also helps with wrinkles and scars(:

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://www.m.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/diet-and-skin

Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.
Always remember to use non-comedogenic products.

* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, leave scars, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://m.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Pimple

Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)

Treatments For Acne On Face

Mark asks…

Laser treatment fo acne?

I had asked a question similar to this before but I was just wondering if anyone had ever gotten laser treaments to clear away acne scarring? I was first recommended to get this by some facial person but then when I went to my dermatologist he recommended it too. He did say though that it could take severval treaments and for up to 5 days your face can be purpley and red….doesnt sound too great for me but i really want these scars to go away. Anyone know anything about this?

admin answers:

Before you try laser treatment, give this a shot…it costs 5 bucks a bottle, and i think it is amazing..
Raw unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
use this apple cider vinegar for rejuvenating results. First, wash the skin in warm water, no soap. Next, apply a wrung out hot water soaked cloth to the face for 3 minutes, then remove. Soak thin cloth in warm vinegar water 2 tbsp per cup of water and again apply to face. Cover the vinegar soaked cloth with a towel wrung out in hot water, relax and lie down for 10 minutes or more, if possible with feet elevated above head. Remove both cloths and gently rub skin upwards with towel or small loofah face pad. This rub removes the hundreds of dry skin scales. You can repeat this weekly or as needed. Your skin will look youthful and beautiful..
I also drink the vinegar, 1-2 tablespoons in water with honey in the morning..and i use the vinegar water as a toner 2 times daily..

Raw unpasturized apple cider vinegar..
The following 2 testimonials can be seen at http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/acne.ht…
Angelina O, has found that applying ACV topically to her face several times a day (4 or more times) has cured her of a “very bad complexion”. She reports that she applies it straight and that while it burns her skin a bit, it still works like a miracle!

You can get it at the health food store, or in some super marktet health food sections. I use bragg vinegar..
Good luck
Cheryl writes, “My daughter developed a case of moderate acne, and after trying a number of different things for over a year which helped very little or not at all, she started drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar three times a day and applying it topically once at night. She has been acne free for two months. It took about three weeks to clear up.”

Donna asks…

Acne Treatment?

I just used toothpaste as an acne treatment for the 3rd time and it just started burning so I washed it off and my face is really pink and hot. I don’t want to use traditional treatments from stores. Do you know any other ways I can treat my acne (it’s pretty light)?

admin answers:

Try going to the dermatologist. He/she will prescribe you something for your face. Something that won’t completely feel off your skin so it can release all the oil causing the acne, since your acne isn’t that bad. But he/she’ll prescribe something just right for your type of skin and the severity of your acne. It’s not an embarassing thing to go to the dermatologist, and if it is for you, then no one has to know…you can just say you have a doctor’s appointment. Lol well i hope this helps. :) also if you want to go completely natural, try Aubrey Organics face wash and moisturizer, etc. It’s made completely of natural stuff and it works. So you might want to give that a try. And remember, even if your skin is oily, still put moisturizer on, because if you don’t and your skin starts getting a little dry, your face will start producing oil, and if your skin is already oily, it will produce more oil and it will eventually get trapped in your pores and you’ll break out even more. So yea hope these tips helped. :)

George asks…

Natural treatment against acne?

I need something against acne that does work, creams against acne that are sold don’t work. And now my face looks like a pizza, please help!

admin answers:

You came to the right place. LOL…….Gud Luk…..P

She still had to use a cleanser, and eat healthy and stuff. But COCONUT oil helps the body, skin and hair in SO many ways!

Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtl-1Kn8G…

How to get rid of acne scars fast?!?

I Had Acne In The Past And I Didn’t Know That If You Pop Em They’ll Turn Into Scars. I Have Few Acne Now. But A Hole Bunch Of Acne Scars On My Forehead. Like One Or Two On My Cheek. I What Em To Go Away Before School Starts. Any Home Remedies Or Anything That Can Help?!?!

admin answers:

Do an Answers search and many say that creams did nothing to get rid of them. You can quickly fade them with this simple, safe, natural treatment that has helped many on Answers (see happy testimonials below ### )

I had pronounced scars from childhood accidents, acne scars, dark marks and a mass of freckles and this treatment got completely rid of them.
To avoid skin pulling/stretching make tighten skin by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth then massage them over and over many times vigorously using extra virgin olive oil or coconut. They are noncomedogenic – so do not clog or cause breakouts. Or make skin oily.
USING BOTH HANDS AT SAME TIME do forward and back massage using front and tips of fingers and palms (where you can). Circular massage will not work.
The massaging friction rubs them away and forces a clear new skin to appear.

For best/quickest results gradually build up to a daily 20 to 30 min massage (skin and hands have to first adjust). Can be in two or more sessions. You should get results in about 7 to 14 days – depending on how frequently/how long you massage.

###
From: Shaboo
Message: ” Hello Mukunda, i just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you. Your massage method works brilliantly .I have one question, you know once my skin is all nice and spot and scar free should i stop the massaging? …”

Jasmin had contacted me about removal of acne scars and dark marks.
“My advice? LISTEN TO MUKUNDA M!!! He knows what he’s talking about. I directly emailed him because he’s gotten so many Best Answers for skincare topics. I’ve been doing the oil/massage treatment for a little more than 3 weeks and I can’t tell you how absolutely fantastic the results are. Seriously. You will not be disappointed”

From: vwy_young (she had long lasting pronounced skin pigmentation)
Subject: Update on massage(5 weeks)
Message: Hi Mukunda,
I massage each time 15 to 20 mins. The smaller patches of pigmentation (more like freckles) are gone but the bigger ones are still there but they are somewhat lighter in color.

Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil’s antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at Lucy Vitamin or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

First of all, no one has flawless skin. Some people have it better than others, but thats just genes and stuff. Go to www.freewebs .com/reelbeauty11 for skin and beauty tips. I know its for young girls, but it works for anyone!

I know some people who have tried ProActive and it worked, but I also know some others who have tried it and it made it worse :( I know some who have put rubbing alchol on their skin or peroxcide to dry up the pimples. It also kills bacteria :) . Also, try going to a dermotoligist, or ask your regular doctor. Often times the regular doctor, who knows more about your med. History and whatnot can help you more than a dermatologist.

Are you a vegetarian? That might have something to do with it. Its worth checking into.

Try dabbing toothpaste or honey on your zits before you go to bed – works wonders.

Overall, remember that beauty counts more on the inside than on the outside, and your true friends will love you for you, and not your skin.

Oh, and try a different kind of foundation, if you wear it. Try to use a kind with lots of water in it. It looks great and doesn’t clog pores half as bad. And check your habits – do you prop your chin up a lot with your hands? That might cause the acne as well. Look for the cause, as well as the cure.

Sandra asks…

Acne treatment…….?

I have been using benzoyl peroxide 3 times a day to treat my acne. It works fine but recently someone told me that washing your face with raw honey is better than using benzoyl peroxide. To me, this seems like homeopathic bullshit but I’ve been wrong before.

I’m just wondering if I should just continue using benzoyl peroxide 3 times a day or if I should start using raw honey 3 times a day?

There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up!

You can’t go wrong with washing your face… Of course, this doesn’t always help those severe cases.

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

I recommend a good, non-comedogenic facewash, so it won’t cause any other breakouts. I prefer CeraVe, but there are many other options! Look around at your local pharmacy.

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts. Again, use non-comedogenic products.

Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide

Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.

Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.

Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…

Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://goo.gl/rnCk1

Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!

Http://m.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Acne

Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Especially when you’re a kid and your parents call the shots on the food! Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://www.m.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/diet-and-skin

Another treatment.. Baking Soda! No way? Yes way. And most house holds have some.
* Make a paste by mixing some baking soda with a little water. Rub it onto your face in circular motions. If you have a specific bad area, you can use a little more there. Apply a few times a day, wash it off and reapply.
* This will expholiate, which is good for getting a deeper cleaning. * Treats your acne by neautralizing, because you have acidity and bacteria.
* It also will get rid of those aweful red shaving bumps!
* In my experience this works very well, but it feels weird..

** You MUST moisturize! Use a non-comedogenic moisturizer! *

Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.

* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://m.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Pimple

Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)
