Re: acne

Hello, I agree with the very helpful advice given by Mayra above. I help edit the British Association of Dermatologists patient information leaflets. I wasn't involved with the acne one but you may find it helpful. https://www.bad.org.uk/shared/get-file.ashx?id=65&itemtype=document BW, Sree

Re: I've to make a decision

Hello there,

Thanks for your message!

I would have a thorough read about the company, impartial review sites and write down any questions that stem from this. If you feel uncomfortable about any of it, I would steer clear. 8-)

Re: Acne getting worse, don't know what to do!

Hi Becca,

Over the counter treatments definitely have their place but if it is resistant to that, you most likely need help from a doctor. Can you let us know if you've spoken with your GP?

Re: Can’t figure out what’s wrong with my skin.

Hi there, Thanks for sending the image along - as they say, a picture says a thousand words. It looks like nodulocystic acne and I can also see evidence of pitted scarring.

Re: What kind of acne is this?

Hi there! Have you seen your GP - they have lots of effective treatments (topicals, antibiotics, pill)? If those don't help or you're developing scarring, they will refer on to someone like me at the hospital. I'm a consultant dermatologist in South London but our waiting times are horrendous at the...

Re: IGe levels

Hi Claire, Specific IgE testing is something of a dark art - when I request them in clinic, I always request a total IgE alongside the specific results. The reason for this is that if you have a very high total IgE, this tends to skew the specific IgE numbers upwards - making them less specific (but...
