Thanks for your question.
To remove the spots, You can try Tretinoin cream 0.05% daily.
THis is a vitamin A derivative helps to grow new skin and remove the blemishes.
Have you tried tretinoin before?
I have tried both, the cream was not very successful, I have been on Tretinoin 3 times twice with short sharp big doses
and once small dose over a long time. It worked whilst taking, but acne returned after I had finished.
Are you still there
hold on be patient --
have you tried any other ointment like adapalene?
Another good option will be Dapsone 5% topical cream.
THis is newer acne reatment proven to be effective in your type of resistant cases.
Yes it worked on some of the smaller pimples, but the big sist type spots it did not work on.
Ok so you will need a combination regimen.
It is better to combine erythromycin and tretinoin together
I have found antibiotics gret
yes that is why combination of antibiotic and tretinoin will work good.
Dapsone is also an antibiotic.
This is combined with benzoyl peroxide or tretinoin
I have found antibiotics great when they work, is there a way of using them so that I can kick
start them to work effectively
I find that they stop working after a month and alternate, but could the antibiotic still now loose
antibiotic ointment can be alternated.
another option oral antibiotic like doxycycline or minocycline
its effectiveness. I am sorry I forgot to mention that I am using retin A to minimise my
combining with retin A will increase the effectiveness.
you can start with oral doxycycline
then switch to topical antibiotic ointment after 4 weeks.
pores and keep my face clearer, I also use hydroquinine in the summer for pigmentation
ok that is also good to remove scars.
So consider the above suggestion.
Will oral doxycycline bring my pigmenation out
it will be more effective
Thank you, could I just ask one last question, will I be able to alternate antibiotics again or
because I have used them alot in the past they will not work for me anymore.
Yes you can alternate antibiotics and that is common practice.
