Thanks for your query.

I can feel your concerns.

The medications provided are for acne and pimples and they took 2 to 3 months for its effect.

Acne usually develop at this age group due to hormonal changes and oily diet.

I recommend you to take Vitamin A along with the rest of medication.
Do regular exercise for quick metabolism of the toxic substances in your body.
Drink 13 to 15 glasses of water and use more vegetable and fruits.

Wishing you a speedy recovery

Thanks for writing back ,

You can place a glass of water at your working place. And make sure you drink them. Water will give your skin natural freshness.

In addition do jogging for 40 minutes daily.
