Remedy For Removing Reddish Acne Scars?
Hello doctor. I want to ask. I am a woman, I have several acne scars that have existed since I was in high school. My mother told me to use refaquin, because my mother also uses it to remove black spots. Can such drugs be used in general? I read the instructions must be based on a doctor’s prescription. What are the possible adverse effects if I use it carelessly?
Hello Fuyushi Yuki, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
The cream you are asking for contains a mixture of 3 kinds of drugs, namely hydroquinone, fluocinolone and tretinoin. These three drugs work differently but when mixed are aimed at helping to reduce black spots on the face specifically for cases of moderate to severe black spots.
For its use in acne scars, it must be based on instructions and considerations from a dermatologist because the mechanism of the formation of black spots and acne scars are very different, so it must be based on the doctor's consideration whether this drug can indeed be used to remove acne scars or not.
Side effects that can arise from indiscriminate use and for a long time include:
Local allergic reaction
Irritation in place of use
The skin becomes dry
New zits appear
Discoloration of the skin becomes increasingly black in the place of use
Increasing the risk of certain cancers
Therefore, its use is highly recommended if only on the recommendation of a doctor.
I hope this helps.
