hi all…tejupriya and am
i’m undergoing starter regimen for more that 2 weeks…
i’m having one large bulge pimple?though i have gud improvement in regimen this making me very sick look 🙁 .As tejupriya said to dab triacneal more one new pimple..it doesn’t work.Please help to get away this monster pimple…i even tried by keeping ice cubes which recently said by am.but its not seems to be working.
i have read many reviews about aha glow will it be helpful?or any other way reduce
Ramgkrish,u cant expect miraculous results from starter regime in 2weeks.u need to patient to see the visible results.there is an old saying slow and steady wins the race.
now coming back to point.As u mentioned tejupriya told u to dab a little extra on the spot.i would not buy this idea.SORRY ,Tejupriya that i am saying against ur recommention.i really appreciate ur support for the acnemantra community.Triacneal[GA 6% retinaldehyde(a form of retinoic acid) ] is already a strong treatment itself.so,applying extra on the spot means overapplication of GA RA and could lead to irritation .this could cause post inflammatory hyperpigmentation(pIh).however,applying ice cubes over acne spots is a good idea.it would reduce its inflammation and size.even i peronally have been using ice cubes in a light circular motion all over my face after shaving whenever it was available for many years.it gives u pleasant and fresh feeling.
as ur suffering from cystic acne.i advise u to use azitromycin 500 mg per day.it is best to use in partition of the dosage.take azitromycin250(azax250) twice a day for few days till the improvement is seen.it has to be used in pulses.take azax 250 one hour befor the meals to prevent diraahea.use it for three days and then stop it for seven days and again for three days and stop for seven days.u can use this routine for two or three cycles.
adding ahaglow(ga 1% rinse off product) would not make any diifrence as u are already using triacneal(6%ga leave on product).leave on products are better in terms of effectiveness.also,ahaglo addition in the starter regime could lead to irritation.
yes ram dabbing aha glow will also help u but u have to put in on pimple for only 2 hr, not more than that ,m also using starter regimn aND 1 PIMPLE IS BIG its not going from 1 week, so dab triacneal on it and its size shrink now not fully gone only shrink ,i am using some antibiotic on it ,tell u later what work and what not with my experiment ,pimples always take time they never go away immediatly so keep calm, i will update what happen
speaking of keeping calm – http://www.skinacea.com/faq/acne/a03-how-to-get-rid-of-a-cyst.html#.Uj7vz9LtiuI you might want to take a look at this page. It explains how to deal with a cyst pretty well and sums up the do s and donts , keeping it realistic.
i also put this site and articles in other question keepcalm,there is lot of information in it,
pls read this good
Thank you rajeev,jassi and keepcalm…
ya jassi tell me if its working…and as rajeev said aha us not effective with starter regimen or will it be?
And rajeev u said to go with azithromycin 250 twice a day..i don’t want to get any bad after effects and will it really helps to reduce the bulge pimples?is azithromycin 250(azax250) needs doctor prescription? Thanks again
keepcalm and cure i just checked the link u provided dont buy this warm compress or rice sock technique.as these could lead to redness and enlarged pores.u would find many misleading information on the net like baking powder,toothpaste etc. For acne.if u ask a good esthetician or derma they would say a big no for this so called warm compress technique.ICE cubes to reduce inflammation and size is a better option and approved by dermas.
ram it is an antibiotic and given by the dermas generally.it is a category b drug.t doesnt have any side effects like isotretinoin if used correctly.ucan take it without any hesitation for two to three pulses.
apart from the previous recommendation u can use clindamycin gel twice aday on the affected area in the day time over ur sunscreen too.triacneal has to be used alone.
thank you rajeev…i will go on with topical treatments 🙂
hi ramg my pimple is pressed ,now i tell u what i do ,i use triacneal as spot treatment in night and also use clean and clean moisture in morning after suncote sunscreen , in free time when i am at home like evening or mid day i put deriva cms on it its clindamycin aand adapalene gel and good to go ,i am also takin baidyanath rakta shodak ,metrogyl is also good antibiotic a member use it as spot treatment on pimple i also buy it after deriva for spot treatment
I was watching a video on Cystic Acne on you tube last night. Generally to overcome cystic acne issues need to avoid dairy and cheese products and also wheat breads ,etc.
I felt so bad after watching that girl cystic acne video and really felt for her 🙁
I remembered one Rajesh Khanna’s song “Duniya mein kitna gum hai mera gum kitna gum hai.. logon ka gum dekhkar mai apna gum bhool gaya”
