Hi Christ, Thank you for the question.
Anyone can feel annoyed if they have acne, especially if it appears on the face area. Acne can occur when the pores of the skin are clogged by the production of a lot of oil / sebum and dead skin followed by the development of bacteria that cause acne. These bacteria will cause irritation so that the skin becomes red, swollen, and pus appears.
In general, you can treat acne on your own by using a cream or gel containing benzoyl peroxide. You should know that acne treatment takes several weeks to several months. Thus, if you are starting a medication it is hoped that you will use it regularly and do not expect short-term results. You can use other acne treatments however, make sure you find out what they contain first. You can do this by looking for the effects of the content on the internet but don't forget to choose a reliable source of information.
The acne medication that you are using has several ingredients that function to treat acne, namely sulfur, salicylic acid, camphor, and sophora angustifolia root extract. Salicylic acid works to treat blackheads (blackheads and whiteheads). Sulfur also works similarly to salicylic acid but has a gentler versifat. Camphor is supposed to treat skin irritation reactions. Sophora angustifolia root extract also has anti-inflammatory effects. These ingredients work together to treat acne. Make sure this acne medication is registered with the BPOM to determine whether this drug is safe or not before using this acne medication. If necessary, apply this medication in the area behind the ear first to test whether this acne medication has a reaction on your skin or not.
Do not hesitate to consult a dermatologist if this complaint does not improve after 1 month of using the same acne medication or if the area of acne is enlarged and enlarged.
Please do the following suggestions:
Use a mild facial cleanser and wash your face with warm water. Avoid using hot water. Do not rub the facial skin too hard. Clean your face from cosmetics every night before going to bed. Avoid using too thick cosmetics. Hopefully this information is useful.
