I am a 40-year-old woman who still gets acne, are there any topical treatments that work?

Hello, I wanted to know if there are topical treatments for acne and acne scars. I am a 40-year-old woman who still gets acne. My skin is very sensitive, and each new treatment prescribed by a doctor only causes more acne to show up. I have totally lost faith in doctors from my area. The type of acne that I have is red, inflamed, painful to touch, filled with puss, and hard to hide with makeup. I have taken a retin-A course before, and it did work for a while but re-emerged. I also have various scars or “holes” in my skin. Any solutions? Thanks!

  1. Hi
    clindamycin is a compound can be found oral or cream or lotion to treat acne
    I can give you a trade name but it varies from a country to another so just ask for the compound name , treatment will be permanent.

    Contratubrex can be used for old scars , use it few times a day with 5 min rubbing
    (If your skin is extremely sensetive , i recommend you test it on a spot first )
    It has same name in all country’s

    Good Luck

  2. Accutane is a good recent choice
    It is oral prescription drug impacts oil production. Once the “oil faucet” is turned off, you eliminate the traffic jam inside the pores, and the breakouts stop.
    But use of accutane is not without hazards. It increases the risk of birth defects and has been linked to episodes of aggressiveness and violent behavior. It may also cause a decrease in bone mineral density if used over a long period of time. All of these -risks are rare
    Instead you can start laser and light therapy that has same effects.
    A good remedy also is turmeric.
    Turmeric with Sandalwood and Milk. turmeric kills the bacteria, milk moisturizes and sandalwood powder soothes the inflamed skin. Mix ½ tablespoon of turmeric powder, 2 tablespoons of sandalwood powder, and enough milk to make a paste. Apply paste on clean skin and other acne affected areas.
