Colchicine (Colchicine)


Topical treatments for acne are so numerous that it is difficult for the ordinary person to select the best preparation. Well-trained pharmacy staff should be able to help you choose a suitable product.
The best topical acne preparations currently available are benzoyl peroxide, Retin-A and clindamycin lotion. Although these preparations do cause some drying of the skin, they do not lead to premature ageing. It is important to emphasize, however, that creams alone will help only the mildest cases of acne and are not sufficient for moderate or severe acne, where oral medication is necessary.
Benzoyl peroxide
Benzoyl peroxide is available as both water-based and alcohol-based preparations such as Benzac, Panoxyl and Oxycover. It unblocks the oily ducts, killing the propionibacterium acnes within the oily glands. It is best for people with oily skin to use an alcohol-based benzoyl peroxide while those with drier or more sensitive skin should use a water-based preparation. If excessive dryness occurs a light moisturizer such as Almay moisturizer for oily skin or Neutrogena moisturizer should be used.
For the face, 5% benzoyl peroxide is suitable unless the skin is very sensitive, when 2.5% would be better. For areas such as the chest and back 10% benzoyl peroxide is often necessary.
