Dear XXXXXXX,
Thanks for your query.

You seem to be suffering from Acne.
As more information helps a physician arrive at an accurate diagnosis, I would request you to answer the following questions:
Have you taken a dermatologist’s opinion as a case of acne has to be investigated for any hormonal imbalance?
Have you taken any other oral medication? Or applied any cream containing steroids?

I would suggest the following:

•     I would suggest that you keep your face clean.
•     Don't apply much of moisturizer.
•     Take plenty of water and good nutritious diet
•     You can try with topical cream containing clindamycin over the lesions morning and evening.
•     You can also apply adaplene cream at night over the spots.

I would still advise you to consult a dermatologist for basic check up.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.


Regards
Dr. Rohit
