How to get rid of acne

Do you feel you’ve tried just about everything to get rid of your acne but still see blemishes? Don’t despair.

Over-the-counter remedies may not always suit your skin. To see clearer skin, you probably just need to make some changes.

The most common types of acne are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, nodules and cystic.

Mild to moderate inflammatory acne requires prescription treatments with ingredients like retinoids, antibiotics, azelaic acid benzoyl peroxide and chemical peels.

Even water pills, normally used for blood pressure, may also help with hormonal acne treatment.

A cortisone injected into a deeper nodule or cyst calls for a more rapid resolution.

Since acne-prone skin is sensitive, washing more than twice a day can irritate your skin and make acne worse.

If you still have acne after trying these tips, get help from a dermatologist.
