Re: Eczema flare caused by sun exposure?

Dear BobbyPea, Many thanks for your question. For the vast majority of people, some sunlight can help eczema - which is why it is often better in the summer and worse in the winter. It is also one of the reasons why dermatologists use artificial light treatment or phototherapy to treat eczema. Howev...

Re: Best ingredient for acne

Thank you so much for your question! I have answered this elsewhere - what products to use for acne-prone skin are a common theme. It is hard to pick the right treatments as the beauty industry is keen to sell, sometimes with little science behind their claims. I will repost my answer below: Good ac...

Re: recurring blackhead

Thank you for your question. I have posted about blackheads elsewhere, but i hope you find some of the suggestions in this useful: Even if blackheads are removed by a variety of procedural methods, they have a tendency to clinically reform every 20-40 days after extraction so multiple ongoing treatm...

Re: acne

Dear Friday85, Thank you for your question. Good acne skincare is more about the right ingredients rather than the right products. Good skincare need not be expensive. I would aim to look for cleansers and moisturisers or leave-on toners which contain the following agents: salicylic acid niacinamide...

Re: PCOS/ENDO/SPOTS & Sport

Dear Cluckyhen, Thanks for your question. I suspect your acne is being driven by your underlying PCOS and there are a number of things I would suggest. 1. Spironolactone - this is an oral medication that can be extremely effective for acne in the context of PCOS and acne in adulthood so sounds like ...

Re: Adult acne

Dear Charlotte122, I'm very sorry to hear about the longstanding trouble you have had with your skin. I am not certain whether you have tried a medication known as spironolactone? This can be very helpful for female adult acne and may be worth discussing with your dermatologist. The other alternativ...

Re: jawline spots

Many thanks for taking the time to post your question. Whilst you do not specifically detail what medications you are currently taking, I think that your painkillers are unlikely to be the cause of your acne. Acne affecting the jawline and neck is sometimes considered to be hormonal in nature, often...

Re: Acne before periods

Dear MayaRose, Many thanks for your question. I have answered a similar question elsewhere in this clinic and i hope you don't mind me reposting it here: Rather annoyingly, a break out of acne or spots is very common in women on a monthly basis. This occurs in very close synchrony with the menstrual...
