Thanks for posting your query.

Treatment of acne would be oral medication, creams and daily skin care routine which further helps in acne.

1. Oral medication such as a course of antibiotic (doxycycline) for a month can help.

2. Various creams that are effective include
- Clindamycin gel twice a day only on the Pimples.
- Benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel once a day on the Pimples.
- Retin A cream 0.025% on full face at night for 2 hrs.
One of the creams can be tried for 6 weeks along with oral medications under the guidance of your dermatologist.

3. In addition to the above, you need to follow a routine of cleansing and sunscreen daily.
- Cleanse your face with cetaphil cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.
- Sunscreen needs to be used daily once every 4 hours; Neutrogena would be a good choice.

Hope these recommendations are helpful to you. Let me know if you have any doubts.
