Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You can try benzoyl peroxide wash 5% initially daily to wash the skin.Retinoid should be used in higher concentration. Tretinoin 0.05% for example is advised daily in the evening. Over the counter tea tree oil can be used daily as well to treat oily skin.
Topical antibiotic ointment like erythromycin 2% or clindamycin phosphate 1% gel also should be considered to treat the problem. Oral isotretinoin is another option for topically resistant acne and oily skin problem.
