Hi, These red pimple marks are called post-inflammatory erythema. They will gradually fade over time. Make sure to use sunscreen daily. Also, a topical prescription regimen to control the acne and the inflammation in the skin will be helpful. You can also add vitamin C/E to your daily skincare regimen. Please see your board-certified dermatologist for evaluation and for a treatment plan. Regards, Darshan Vaidya, MD, FAAD Aura Dermatology (Robbinsville/Somerset, NJ) READ MORE
Hyperpigmentation from acne generally is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and has a tendency to fade over time. I strongly emphasize daily use of sunscreen to prevent darkening of this pigmentation even with casual sun exposure. Also, there are various prescription creams that can be used to help control acne that will also help fade pigmentation. Last, chemical peels or laser treatments can also be done to help with pigmentation if you are very bothered by it. I hope this helps! Please see your board certified dermatologist for treatment options! Regards, Darshan Vaidya, MD, FAAD READ MORE
For seborrheic dermatitis, it is prevalent in oily skin areas and hypothesized to be caused by a yeast that lives on our skin. Using Nizoral 1% or other dandruff shampoos OTC even as a wash for affected areas of the forehead 3-4 times per week will help. If you need a prescription, please see your board-certified dermatologist for assessment and treatment. Darshan Vaidya, MD, FAAD READ MORE
Deep acne scars are very difficult to treat. Likely they will require multiple treatments that can range from microneedling, TCA CROSS, punch excision of very deep scars, or laser resurfacing. Different scars (depth, width, etc.) will respond best to different modalities and therefore a combination approach will likely be necessary. It is important that you see your board-certified dermatologist for evaluation of the types of scars you have and for a treatment recommendation. Thank you. Darshan Vaidya, MD, FAAD READ MORE
There are many different reasons for blister formation, so treatment depends on the underlying cause. If the blister is not due to a fungal infection, a topical antifungal cream would not work. Please see your dermatologist for evaluation and treatment. Darshan Vaidya, MD READ MORE
First and foremost, it is crucial to make sure you are indeed suffering from ringworm and not some other rash that is mimicking its appearance. Ringworm usually does not cause pain, as you are describing. The choice of topical (or oral) treatments relies on an accurate diagnosis.

Usually, dark spots caused by acne are post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and will fade gradually over time. I would recommend daily SPF 30+ as well as other non-steroid/hydroquinone based preparations or chemical peels to help improve the appearance of the skin. READ MORE

The tendency towards oily skin is innate to your skin. But there are certain oil control face washes and medications that can be used to help control sebum (oily secretion) production. Using topical retinol creams can be very helpful. READ MORE
Oily scan does not "cause" acne, but can certainly contribute to acne. For example, there are people that have oily skin complexion but do not have acne. Acne is caused by the interplay between bacteria that lives in the hair follicle, sebum (oily skin), hyperkeratosis (loose skin cells that clog pores), and inflammation with factors such as genetics, hormonal factors, and diet as overlying factors. There are various treatments for acne aimed to target the various etiologies. Please visit your board certified dermatologist for treatment consideration. Thank you. Dr. Vaidya READ MORE
Depending on where on the face and the type of wart (if in fact it is a wart), there are various creams or destructive methods (liquid nitrogen, electrodesiccation, etc) that can be used. Please make an appt to see your board certified dermatologist to discuss your options! READ MORE
Acne is a condition that can be managed, not necessarily “cured.” Many patients who take a course of isotretinoin (accutane), may see long-term permanent clearance of their acne, but we still don’t call it a “cure” because there is always a chance it can recur. We have lots of different topical and oral medications we can use in combination with aesthetic treatment to help your skin look and feel great! READ MORE
