Acne, what's the best treatment?
What is the beast treatment for acen, i have tried all that clearisil stuff, and the rest, but i cant find anything any good. I suppose its just something i have to put up with!

The mutha of invention
You can try popping them, it hurt but it was worth it.

Both my sisters have had problems with acne (on the face and back) and one of them uses Proactive Solution religiously and the other has tried many products but I think what she uses the most is buffer pads.

no their is something that truely works for everyone. Some people have very sensetive kin and not so sensitive skin. I suppose that if you wasj your face every night and use retnie to get rid of the zits youll be good to go also take of your makeup before you go to bed it can lead to clogged poors.

tuff luv
read tips on treating acne, skincare and home remedies on this site

shilpa n
hav u tried freedom cause it really works
jus apply it 3 times a day n then within 3 days all your acne will be gone n don't worry everyone gets spots at sum point in life., lol hope this helps....

I agree, maybe salycilic acid will work a lot better on you. Just the regular orange liquid Neutrogena acne foam wash works wonders.

Or try Retin-a micro. It's $20 if you've got insurance plus the company offers $10-20 rebates. Works SUPER great!

find a doctor and tell them you want to try "diffrin" gel.. its for acne and it works soo good!!! I used it after I had tried all the other stuff and I saw results in like 2 days.. it was better over night but I had major results after 2 days.. they can also give you a medicine u can take for it. but you cant be in the sun alot with it.

Try this for acne:

Accutane-an antibiotic and Ziana- a new acne gel. See your dermotologist. Also wash face with cool or cold water, never hot. And never use scrubs or toners, they aggravate acne. Use a mild cleanser and mositurizer like Cetaphil, or Panoxyl Bar 10% Soap can be found at drugstores.
If you want to try an acne system, try Patricia Wexler MD acne line at Bath & Body. Its costs $50.00 for the starter kit, but you can return it if you dont like it. I love her products.

Try Bog Myrtle (Myrica gale L.) It's an essential oil that's 4 times more effective than Tea Tree oil. HTH

For some people one particular treatment will work well, for others it won't.

One hint I have found to find the treatment that works for you without spending huge amounts is to take advantage of trials provided by the manufacturers.


I had BAD acne on my forehead and cheeks in high school.
I just started washing my face with antibacterial soap , patting it dry and then rubbed menthol alcohol all over. It dried up all the oil on my face that broke it out in the first place. Try it . It worked for me so maybe it could work for you.
PS- if your skin is naturally dry , use baby lotion to moisturize.
It doesnt clog your pores.
If it doesnt clear up, try Cetaphyl. It can be found just about anywhere.

pro active is crap. Have you tried the neutrogena acne stres control. ? It has sylic acid instead of benzoyle proxide. my daughter and I are doing much better with it. if not that then a doctor maybe able to put you on penacillian. I had to do that for a bit. pretty hard to get a doctor to do it though. Those are really my only 2 suggestions if you have tried everything. And we like noxzema too.

Just a Helper
In my opinion cp is the best. but there are a number of them that are pretty good.

Don't wash your face with a sponge while taking a shower--wash it afterwards with a wash cloth.
*Get a wash cloth from target or where ever. Buy aveeno positively radiant body wash----it says "helps even skin tone and texture" on the bottle. Pour a dime size of the aveeno on the washcloth and Wash your face two times a day---once in the morning and once in the evening.

I think this site has excellent advice for treatment of acne, please type in acne in search & look thru' results

I've had the same problem but ever since I've started using clindamycin phosphate lotion (an antibacterial topical lotion) prescribed by my GP my acne has gone a lot better, even the marks are disappearing slowly. My advice to you is that please dont waste money on buying the expensive stuff that claims to do miracles!if you really want to treat your acne u've got to show it to your GP who can then prescribe oral (like tetracycline) or topical drugs. Most of the doctors say that b.peroxide is a bit harsh on the skin. Washing your face (with any decent fash wash) twice a day is good and make sure you don't touch your face when your hands are dirty. Don't try too many creams, foundations etc if you have got acne as it can sometimes make the acne go worse by blocking the pores even more instead stick to the tried and tested 'simple' mosturisers. Neutrogena lotion with salicyclic acid is good as well as it stops the pores from getting blocked. But you can not get anything strong until you see your GP.


Different types discussed here:


There are several treatments that can help to clear up your acne. The treatment you have will depend on how severe your acne is.

Treatment can make your acne much better. But it can take about eight weeks to work.1 2
You can buy a treatment called benzoyl peroxide from a chemist. It comes as a gel or cream that you put on your skin.
Other treatments can be prescribed by your doctor. They come as gels, creams or tablets.
You may need to keep using your treatment for several months.
If one treatment doesn't help, your doctor will be able to suggest something else.
Getting treatment early can stop you getting scars.3 4

hope it goes away, i knew a freind who had it, he tried honey in wtare in teh mornings it clears your system ,and also had som amount of green shillie sin his diet, and gave up sweet food altogether.
