Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.

Acne although a Common condition yet it takes a lot of efforts & expertise to control. There is no readymade treatment available. The treatment is individualized, means that every patient require different medicines depending upon skin type & type of lesions. Further, you should have patience as treatment may last for 6 months or so.It may happen that in first 2 months you may not get any relief or your lesions may increase but by the end of 4-5 months the acne lesions will stop appearing. My advice is to stop taking advice from your friends, chemists etc. Please visit a good Dermatologist, have faith in him & complete the treatment.

Hope this helps you.
Good luck
