Hi Dear,

Acne and black heads can be treated effectively.

Blackheads can be removed manually by comedone extractor by a dermatologist.

Acne treatment depends on grade of acne.

Mild acne can be treated with topical medications like clindamycin, tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide.

Severe acne can be treated with oral antibiotics like doxycycline, azithromycin, oral retinoids etc.

Special Facewash, chemical peeling, laser treatment can be helpful in acne.

A visit to your nearest dermatologist will be needed for examination and suitable treatment of your acne.

Hope I’ve answered your query.

I will be available for any follow up query.

Dr Sudarshan.
