Hi Dr. Ashori here. I can recommend something over the counter but we don't give prescriptions over this platform. Please send me the picture and I can help you out.

You have 3 different issues going on.

You have comedones.

You have inflamed cysts.

You have mild rosacea.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

First make sure you are not eating or drinking anything that sets this off.

Alcohol and sugars and a lot of carbs such as too much bread or rice will set these off.

To control the comedones you will need to wash your face daily with either benzoyl prexode 5% or salycilic acid washes. These are over the counter.

The cystic acne will go away once you control the comedones, thankfully you don't have a lot of those.

Avoid any alcohol on your face and try not to use any moisturizer except cetaphil face cleanser.
