Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

I am so sorry to hear about these acne on your skin.

For acne ,the aim of treatment is to prevent new spots forming,to improve those already present, and to prevent scarring.

Apply ointment containing bezoyl peroxide like clearasil Max.It has antibacterial effects and can dry out the skin and encourage it to shed the surface layer of dead skin.It is available as over the counter.

Other treatment includes topical retinoids (eg Adapalene),topical antibiotic lotion,oral antibiotics,oral retinoid like isotretinoin (eg Roaccutane) may be prescribed by the doctor.

Topical retinoids clear up moderate-to-severe acne by normalizing the way the skin grows and sheds.they can be prescribed by your doctor.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor for the clinical examination & then treatment will be done accordingly. Till then please apply ointment containing bezoyl peroxide like clearasil Max. This will help you greatly.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
