Whats a better topical treatment for acne? differin(adapalene) or veltin(tretinoin)?
which is the better topical treatment for acne? i think i have heard that tretinoin is better because it even works for the acne scars by increasing collagen. What about differin(adapalene). Does adapalene work just as well. They are both topical retinoids from what i have heard.

this is going to sound strange and also it doesnt quite answer your question. but i have had very bad acne, the scarring kind and so far only a few things have worked for me and i have tried both differin, veltin, and a LOT LOT of other things about 60 to estimate. but anyhow what has worked for me is i use axe body wash for my face, yes i know axe body wash wtf. i dont know why but it works better than anything ive ever used. also the water is a HUGEEEEE deal. i when i go up to college my face clears up to almost perfection. but when i come home we have well water and it comes right back. also, the last thing thats worked for me is the dry peelyness becomes a problem when using many things and you dont wanna lotion your face thats the worst thing you can do, but instead, to prevent scarring i use the highest spf sunblock lotion you can find. put about a dot on your face and it will prevent scarring like i said as well as make your face good. and smell good haha. hope i could help!!1 Answered by Della Satterwhite 4 months ago.
Hi, I am a dermatologist by profession and within a careeer of 10 years I have seen lots of acne problems. According to me Red and white pimples are the worst and painful. Acneprone skin is very sensitive, even if you touch it once the redness will increase with itching. According to me there is no magical way to heal your pimples over night as this is the puffed part of your skin due to the bacteria. In simple words try to improve your diet and have lots of water that helps in healingg process. Un-necessary oily food should be avoided to get a healthy spotless skin.

I would suggest you try using Jojoba Oil as it is almost identical organically-speaking to sebum, which is the natural oil produced by your skin. As well as being a great natural moisturizer it can also help with acne, Jojoba Oil penetrates into the skin without clogging pores and is suitable for all skin types it contains vitamin E and antioxidants which are great for fighting aging signs and moisturizing the skin. Studies on jojoba oil show that it has the ability to prevent skin from becoming too oily. This is due to the fact that putting jojoba oil on our skin can trick our cells into thinking they have produced enough oil. Remove any surface dirt from your skin, then put just a few drops of jojoba oil into your hand and rub it into your skin when you start to work jojoba oil into the skin, the oil penetrates into the pores. As jojoba closely resembles your skin's own oil, moisturizing with jojoba oil sends the message to your pores to stop overproducing the sebum that causing the oily skin.

Has anyone ever used VELTIN gel for acne and if so what was your results?
ok my dermitoligst prescribed me Veltin gel for acne but i looked it over online and saw it may result some side effect so has anyone used this and if so was it better or terrible product thanks in advance
Asked by Ethan Blannon 4 months ago.
This is a new acne medication and likely your prescription was the result of over eager drug reps in your dermatologist's office pushing their sales. I'm afraid you are not going to find a lot of first-hand data on this since it is so new. "Supposedly" it should result in a decrease of skin irritation. Clindamycin gel and Retin-A are not exactly new in treating acne. I tend to find that Aczone works better for acne, but that is just my personal experience. Good luck!

Veltin acne topical cream and birth control?
I am taking Yaz birth control and have heard that certain antibiotics weaken the BC. I was prescribed Veltin by my dermatologist. It is a topical cream that I put on my face every night. One of its active ingredients is clindamycin phosphate 1.2%. This is an antibiotic. Will it make my BC less effective?
Asked by Verdie Lemons 4 months ago.
Nope. Very few topically applied antibiotics make it into the blood stream in significant concentrations. The warnings about contraindications between birth control and antibiotics refer, almost exclusively, to oral antibiotics. Answered by Kati Hannen 4 months ago.
How do you apply veltin, the acne cream?
my doctor told me to try that and if it wasn't doing anything, then i'd go on accutane.
Asked by Kendal Boyter 4 months ago.
It's brand new so no one will have experience with it. It is a combination of clindamycin and tretinoin. It does not matter if you wash first. The tretinoin can be irritating so go slow. Apply it every other night to the acne prone areas and work up to every night all night. Working up will minimize irritation. You can wash it off in the morning. There are a lot of treatment options between this and accutane. Answered by Ilona Revello 4 months ago.

If you narrow your expectation to "faster", then you may as well be disappointed with any treatment. Faster like how?! If you are mildly erubescent from skin irritation and inflammation, then a topical product concentrated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients can CORRECT the redness. Ingredients to look for in are: beta-glucan, bisabolol, allantoin Recommendations: 1)1% hydrocortisone cream (drugstore) for short-term relief only 2)Boots Intensive Wrinkle Reduction Serum 3)Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum, Fragrance-Free 4)Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment 5)Any of Paula’s Choice Super Antioxidant Concentrate. 6)Clinicians Complex Super C-Plus Serum 7)RevaleSkin Intense Recovery Treatment 8)Skin Biology CP Serum | Super CP Serum 9)SkinCeutical CE Ferulic acid 10)SkinMedica Vitamin C+E Complex 11)Topix Replenix Serum CF To PROTECT and PREVENT your skin from future redness, it is imperative that you wear broad-spectrum with SPF 15 and reapply after swimming, excessive perspiration, or every 2 hours for optimal photoprotection. If you have severe redness, then you need to seek a board-certified dermatologist for in-office treatment like Intense Pulsed Light, Pulse Dye Laser Nd:Yag laser, or V-beam laser.

Aloe Avera. If you want to try a product that will help your acne and wont burn try Herbalifes Aloe aver. I had a friend who had severe acne and she was reccomened aloe avera from herbalide. After 3 weeks she had now more acne only scars then after 7 weeks she had prefect skin and the she continued to use it for 3 months. She stoped useing it then she rarely gets acne like 1 pimple a month. If you want a natural way to get rid of the red and imflamation try Ice it really helps.

There is no any best cream. It depends upon person to person. Without using yourself nobody can tell which cream is best. So I recommend to visit this site and let you know yourself about the product and their features. Answered by Alison Brocks 4 months ago.

Salicylic Acid is a known and effective treatment for acne. If it's only $20 and all those others aren't working for ya, then I'd give it a shot. Answered by Nichole Griffins 4 months ago.
That's pretty strong, it's really something you should have done at the dermatologists not at home. If you want to try it I guess it might be OK but don't leave it on the full recommended time. And if you have any bad reaction go to the dermatologist. edit- make sure you wear sunscreen if you're using that. Because it takes off the top layer of skin it makes your skin really sensitive to sun damage so get a high spf facial sunscreen and use it every single day, for at least a couple weeks after you stop using it. Also it will probably be drying so use moisturizer too Answered by Kate Moren 4 months ago.
NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL 1/ Never, ever touch your face. 2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day. 3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal 4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal. Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing. 5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again. 6/ Do this for 90 days. 7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to ï¿½double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days. Source: A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.

20% is way to strong for acne and can make it even worst by overdrying it, which then causes your skin to produce more oil. Differin, is a prescription topical treatment and works wonders. See your doctor to get a prescription. Differin is very gentle and has worked very well for me. Answered by Ricky Mattison 4 months ago.
