Doctor :   Let me give you more information about your problem and its current state
Doctor :  
You are currently having acute reaction of the acne

because of bacterial infection
Doctor :  
This is because of your frequent handling of pimples and environment factors.
User :   ok
Doctor :  
This is also because you have not taken proper skin care regimen

Acne is a very common skin problem at this age
Doctor :  
The cause is unknown
Doctor :  
They disappear on their own most of the times
User :   yes i did not care now my face looks ugly XXXXXXXX
Doctor :  
Till then one has to take proper skin care regimen with the help of a Skin specialist
Doctor :  
The treatment should not be for the current episode but to prevent the future break outs of the pimples
Doctor :  
So it takes long time for a proper care
Doctor :  
for about 6 months
Doctor :  
following up properly with the Doctor
Doctor :  
One should not change the Doctor which quite happens with most of the person suffering with the problem
Doctor :  
This is because of the stress they have as it is a social stigma
Doctor :  
to look with pimple face
User :   yes i agree
User :   so whats medication i should take as of now
Doctor :  
Currently you require a course of antibiotic as they seem to be severly infected
User :   i am pharma professional,lack of time had neglected the issue
User :   ok
Doctor :  
The right antibiotic is judged by proper inspection of the pimples
Doctor :  
So the best thing that you can do right now is to see a Skin specialist in your area

Moreover you have not seen one yet
Doctor :  
and it has become chronic problem
User :   ok i will
