Q. Does acne itch?



Hi doctor,

I had acne on my left nostril and left arm. They were small and itchy. When I scratched, blood came out and the area has become red. Even after four days, there is redness with some bulging. There is some inflammation and itching as well. Sometimes, there is also a sensation of itching throughout the body, but there is no soreness or acne on my body except my left nostril and left arm. I am currently on Sarna lotion and Atarax 25 mg.

  • Was it just acne or may be some insect bit? Because, in acne there will not be any itching.
  • So, I think it is some insect bite and the same thing happened to another part of the body. Due to scratching you further triggered the inflammation.
  • I suggest the following treatment. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • Mild steroid and antibiotic cream such as Flutivate cream (Fluticasone) is a good one. Also, can use Fucibet cream (Betamethasone and Fusidic acid) once in a day.
  • I suggest one antibiotic too. Tablet Augmentin 625 mg (combination of Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid) twice in a day for 7 days would be a good option.
  • I would like to add some oral steroid tablet Wysolone 20 mg (Prednisolone) for 3 days in the morning after food.
