Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening, I am Dr Elliot. Are you able to provide a photo of your skin please?
Thank you. Have you used anything so far?
So as a general rule you should start with benzoyl peroxide which you can get from a pharmacist and I would use one with combination with a retinoid.
If that doesn’t help after a few weeks, you can add in a topical antibiotic. And then an oral antibiotic if no further benefit
After this the option is for roaccutane
So there is certainly a lot you could do, but I would start at the bottom of the list and work up depending on your results
Sorry I missed your comment. Some of face theory products should. I think some of theirs contain a retinol
The topical antibiotic has to come from your GP if it was needed, but they could do that over the phone
Try the link, it advises you on the conventional treatments
If you have used a retinol for a few weeks already, I would step up to the antibiotics but continue to use a retinol product, this helps prevent resistance
No worries, best of luck with this. But you still have a lot of options, good luck
Please could you kindly rate my response to your question, many thanks
