What Can Help Your Acne or Make It Worse

Acne is often treated by a dermatologist, a doctor who specializes in diseases and disorders of the skin. Dermatologists treat all kinds of acne, particularly severe cases. Doctors who are general or family practitioners, pediatricians, or internists may treat patients with milder cases of acne.

Prescription Topical Medications

Several types of topical medications and over-the-counter products are known to treat acne effectively.

Creams and lotions are moisturizing and tend to be good for people with dry skin. Gels and solutions are generally alcohol-based and tend to dry the skin, so patients with excessively oily skin or those who live in hot, humid climates may prefer a gel.

For all of u wanting to get rid of acne... I thought it was hopeless for me. I tried going to the dermatologist, and I used several products. But really it didn’t work with me. I even used medication. But what really worked on me was this stuff I learned from the Cure Acne eBook.

It really works!

Hi Peeps,

I have had acne ever since I was like 11! I always thought there was nothing I could do about it so it just got worse and worse. Finally I got sick of it and went to the doctor.

I tried loads of tablets and they even suggest I went on the pill! None of these really worked for me.

But since using a strong medicated solution on my face prescribed a while ago from my doc I found that my acne is almost non existent and now all I have to worry about is my weight!

You've got to just find the right stuff 4 u!

Acne, another wonderful part of growing up. Yeah right, huh?

Well, of course it IS completely normal, but we still like to avoid it as much as possible. Magazines and all that, they can't really tell you how to cure acne because they don't know what type of skin you have, etc. etc.

The only way you will find out is by going to a dermatologist. A lot of (acne free) people don't realize that acne is not always something that you can just always wash away. It may take medications, or something else. Don't let acne ruin your life -- get the help you need but don't forget to live your life!

Hi there, I would just like to say I have acne... like I don't have much but I have acne. And it is apart of growing up so don't be ashamed of having it because when I started getting acne I was ashamed to leave my house but now I know it is apart of life (be proud of who u r).

How Should Teens With Acne Care for Their Skin?… Clean Skin Gently... Avoid Frequent Handling of the Skin... Shave Carefully... Avoid Suntanning... Choose Cosmetics Carefully. Teen girls being treated for acne often need to change some of the cosmetics they use. All cosmetics, such as foundation, blush, eye shadow, and moisturizers, should be oil free. What Research Is Being Done on Acne? Medical researchers are working to develop new topical antibiotics for treating acne to replace some of those in current use. As with many other types of bacterial infections, doctors are finding that, over time, the bacteria that cause acne are becoming resistant to treatment with certain antibiotics. A different type of antibiotic or a stronger one is needed to kill disease-causing bacteria once they become resistant to existing antibiotics. Research is being conducted on lipophilic compounds, a class of drugs that are potent in decreasing inflammation. Additional research is also being conducted on the potential side effects of isotretinoin and the long-term use of medications used for treating acne. Other researchers are attempting to determine the factors in girls during early puberty that might predict the development of severe acne later. Finally, some researchers are studying how acne affects certain aspects of teenagers’ lives, including psychological health and quality of life.
