  1. Hello
    Welcome to MediMetry, Thanks for asking a question at MediMetry.
    Having pimples in this age is normal. It depends upon various factors like
    1. Dirt and pollution
    2. Hormonal imbalance.
    3. Using too much cosmetic products on face.
    4. Eating too much oily and spicy food.
    5. Improper sleep.

    There are the following tips that may help you to get rid of pimples

    1. 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.
    2. Don’t scrub as this worsens your acne.
    3. Apply Benzaclin ointment in the day time. This will help treat the pimples
    4. 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.
    5. If it still does not become better, please see a dermatologist for a prescription of oral antibiotics like doxycycline, azithromycin etc.
    6. Eat Fresh vegetables and fruits having rich in Vitamin C.
    7. Drink 3-4 lt water a day.
