How can acne and facial hair be treated?
Q: I am a 28 years old woman having 2 children. After the birth of my second child I had family planning done after which I have been having irregular periods, which caused more acne and hair growth on my face. The doctor prescribed medicines and cream to retain my normal skin, which was working fine. But the doctor said I have to take these for an infinite period. So I stopped taking it. Now I am taking Krimson 35 and the periods have become regular and acne ha also reduced. However, I still have some black patches on the skin near my mouth. Last month I got some rashes on my face after waxing. The doctor prescribed Zadorin doxycycline broad-spectrum antibiotic. Is it safe to take it along with Krimson 35? Please advise.
A:The whole description of yours appears to be of hormonal origin - the acne, facial hair, and pigmentation.
- Please wash your face frequently with soap and water.
- Avoid sunlight.
- Continue some more courses of Krimson, under your doctor’s supervision.
- Apply gently Adapalene gel at nights.
- Use benzyl peroxide face wash.
