A pimple emergency should be your wake up call to the importance of a skin maintenance regimen. Prescription medications for acne are preventative and really weren’t created for pimple emergencies. In many cases patients make their pimple emergencies worse by globbing prescription medications onto their little volcano. This only irritates the pimple and the surrounding skin, making it that much more obvious.
But by going on a maintenance program with a topical retinoid and other topical medications that work below the surface to keep pores clog free, you can prevent that dramatic call your dermatologist’s office and go to sleep the night before your big event terror free! - Dr. Andrea Trowers
