Hello, I am a 50 year old man. I used to suffer with acme as a younger man and again in my around 10 years a go. I do not so much now , but do suffer with oily/ greasy skin and have never really used any product. I would like to have one recommended if possible. I do not mind paying for a top end price range product.
JA: JustAnswer requires a modest payment. You'll see the amount on the next page. It's way less expensive and more convenient than any face-to-face visit.
Customer: Ok
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, what are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: Oily greasy skin.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a dermatologist about this?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: No

Ok, will we be able to talk on the phone tomorrow?


Thanks for your patience. I would prefer to type down my recommendations.

You seem to be having really oily skin.

The measures I would recommend are:-

1. Cleanse the face with neutrogena deep clean facewash twice a day.

2. Apply a very light moisturizer like cetaphil cream only in case it is required.

3. Apply a sunscreen before going out in the sun.

4. Apply differin gel at night on full face for a couple of months, to reduce the dryness.

These measures will help to keep oiliness at bay.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

Take care
