Neha asks :

Keeping in tune with Jomol, I have a question today, I would like to know of a cream you might have used during an acne break out and it worked for you. It can be a prescriptive one too like Facelin I have heard about. :)

Benzoyl Peroxide (i use Galderma Benzac 2.5%) works like a charm each time wen i break out :)

I’ve used Acnesol for quite a while but this time it totally failed on me. I have this huge pimple on my lipline filled with pus and dying to pop it but trying to refrain because it might scar. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it?
Btw, I’ve heard benzoyl peroxide has side effects. *scared*

hi nandini,try vicco turmeric on it.its safe.BP irritates until it dries which i got used to,as it was working on me.It makes my super oily skin a little dry,so not suited for dry to normal skin:) now i don’t need it dat much*touchwood*
and discussing with a good derma makes the difference.I have been suffering from acne for more than 9 years, and two months of proper medication and treatment before engagement from a GOOD derma had cleared my skin,all my aunties were surprised wen they saw me in my marriage. *happydance*
He gave tablets to control sebum secretion,cream to reduce pigmentation and a acne cream,and a soap.
I asked him so many queries and he discussed the pros and cons of the products,precautions with me :)

I use a 2% salicylic acid gel that sells by the name Sebogel. It is easily available in pharmacies. It works fine for me.

nilac gel… clindamycin 1% and niacinamide 4%.. the thing about clindamycin is,it works beautifully in the beginning but soon we become resistant to it… benzoyl peroxide gives me dark spots. waiting for replies *waiting*
