Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Recently, I've been facing a concern that's been bothering me. I've noticed an outbreak of pimples spanning from my shoulder to my hip area. I'm unsure about the best approach to address this issue. Could you kindly provide me with guidance on how to effectively treat it?


Answered by Dr. Jaša Žerjal


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Firstly, it's important to address the issue both internally and externally. I recommend starting with an oral antibiotic regimen of doxycycline 100 mg per day for a duration of 8 weeks. This will help combat the underlying bacterial infection contributing to the outbreak.


Additionally, topical application of an antibiotic such as clindamycin solution directly to the affected areas can aid in reducing inflammation and preventing further spread of the infection. You can find these medications at your local pharmacy.


Incorporating the use of an antiseptic soap into your daily skincare routine can also be beneficial. Look for products specifically designed to combat acne and promote skin health.


Remember to be consistent with your treatment regimen and maintain good skincare practices.
