Hello Hameed this is Dr. Salama MD,

I would recommend a few things:

Trying benzoyl peroxide which is over the counter.

If it does not work your doctor can prescribe a cream known as Retin-A.

You can also take oral antibiotics if deemed necessary by your physician

Let me know if you have any other questions.
