  1. Hi,

    Welcome to MediMetry, I can understand your concern.
    Acne is normal in this age.Acne, medically is known as Acne Vulgaris, is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. It commonly occurs during puberty when the sebaceous (oil) glands are stimulated by male hormones produced by the adrenal glands of both males and females.
    Acne can be affected by the menstrual cycle, anxiety and stress, hot and humid climates, oil based makeup, greasy hair and pimple squeezing.
    Although the exact treatment of pimples depends on how severe the problem is, the following measures will definitely help:
    a. Wash your face once or twice daily with salicylic acid soap ( available as Acnelak) and water. This is to remove excess oil from the skin. After washing your face, use an oil free moisturizer.
    b. Don’t scrub as this worsens your acne.
    c. Apply Benzaclin ointment in the day time. This will help treat the pimples
    d. At night, apply 0.1% adapalene gel on the whole face. Dont apply in the day time as this can react with the sun and cause a reaction. This would cause some dryness and redness but this would gradually become better over a period of time.
    e. If it still does not become better, please see a dermatologist for a prescription of oral antibiotics like doxycycline, azithromycin etc.
    f. Drink 3-4 lt water daily.
    g. Eat vegetables like Spinach and carrot. it will help you to cure acne.
