Medication To Treat Acne?
doctor,rmy mother bought me medicine for acne at the pharmacy. The pharmacist gave the medicine in the form of a white cream in a small cup, I’m not sure what the ingredients are because it didn’t come when my mother bought it. The cream is prescribed with the antibiotic doxycycline as well as capsules like skin supplements.rnI just want to know the ingredients of the cream and what cosmetics I should avoid while taking the drug. Thank you 😊😊
Hi, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com
Acne is caused by clogged pores and causes bacteria (Propionobacterium acnes) to grow rapidly and cause irritation to the skin so that it becomes red and festering. Some of the factors that can cause acne include:
Hormonal changes (menstruation and pregnancy)
Irritation (hands often touch the face)
Drug side effects
It is very difficult to determine the content of cream concoctions obtained from pharmacies, because each concoction has a very variable content from one another and it is difficult to distinguish by color. You should ask the content and how to use the cream to the pharmacy where you buy the cream.
Things you can do to treat acne on your face include:
Avoid pressing or popping the pimple yourself
Avoid excessive use of cosmetics
Routinely clean the face 2 times a day
Manage stress well
Using acne medication if needed (Article: Acne Treatment)
