My doctor is recommending to mix a little Ketoconazole (Nizoral 2%) cream with Mometasone Furoate (Elocon) 0.1% cream and put on areas of my face where I have developed bad acne. I am 52 years old and I am thinking that my acne is coming from my changes or also some stress I have. But I wanted to know, for my age group, is this going to scar my face or lighten or darken it as I am starting to get wrinkled and am concerned if it will give me more scars than I already have to deal with ( I have few scars due to me squeezing these large pimples to get puss out plus when I squeeze I feel that it relieves that painful pressure). He also prescribed Doxycycline Hyclate 100 mg capsules to take orally. I will be at my summer condo soon and will be exposed to sun. I wanted to know if (1) does this pill give any side effects and (2) I was thinking just to use the topical first because I will be exposed to sun and really dont like taking anything oral if I don't have to. Do u think just with topical (which doctor said to use about 1 hour b4 going to bed) would be enough to clear my skin and skip the pills?
Thank you and have a nice day. Patty P.
