Acne Cream Treatment Tips
Acne Creams are usually graded by how severe the acne is. Yes, we've all seen acne that has made us wince and say "ouch, I'm glad that's not me".
Basic Acne Creams
Most teenagers and of course adults have acne. Acne cream can be used on the facial area as well as on the back and neck. These acne creams are usually available for purchase at chemists as well as online by clicking on the banner ads, you can search Zappos and find them.
Mild Acne Creams
Acne creams that treat whiteheads, blackheads and pimples are typically a soap or cream that are used by rubbing on the facial area. Be sure these acne creams have benzoyl peroxide (such as Brevoxyl or Benzac) or salicylic acid (such as Propa pH or Stridex). Remember that your doctor can give you a prescription for an antibiotic lotion if acne is very severe or the acne creams aren't working effectively.
Severe Acne Creams
Acne creams often don't work! Especially if you have severe acne, or larger blemishes that cause deep discoloring and often leave facial scars. Acne creams don't work on these severe instances and oral antibiotics which take out the inflammation is the best treatment. You should also consult your doctor if the acne cream doesn't remove the acne. Large pimples can require drainage by a doctor or a presecription of retinoids or azelaic acid.
