Go to the doctor

I have to admit I get a little exasperated when some patients attempt to self medicate and just go to the doctor when things go very wrong, especially when it's the self remedy that worsened the situation.

On best way to get rid of pimples, well, there is really no clear cut answer. It really depends on what the dermatologist finds.

Same thing with conjunctivitis. Pinoys have this annoying habit of just buying eyedrops over the counter. Or one member of the family sees an ophthalmologist and the rest just share with the medication.

Do yourself a favor and see a doctor for your ills. You may even end up paying more for meds without a proper assessment by a professional -- in lost income and days of work and more meds bought.
