My acne refuses to go. Any advice?

Q: I am a 29 year old girl and have a lot of acne. I have tried using many creams and treatments, but have not helped. My skin is oily and I have more problems in summer. Please advise.

A: My advice would be that you consult a dermatologist, because when acne are left untreated, they form bad scars.

Nowadays many treatments are available that help to manage acne. However, don’t use any creams, lotions or antibiotics unless recommended by a physician. Since you have an oily skin, wash your face regularly and drink plenty of fluids. Stay away from spicy and fried food.

Note: If you are intolerant or allergic to certain foods, then you may be at a risk of developing acne.
