Welcome to XXXXXXX
For Acne, washing once or twice a day with a mild cleansing bar or liquid (for example, Dove, Neutrogena and Cetaphil are all inexpensive and popular) will keep the skin clean and minimize sensitivity and irritation. You can go antibacterial cleanser if required.
A variety of mild scrubs, exfoliants, and masks can be used. These products contain either fine granules or salicylic acid in a concentration that makes it a very mild peeling agent. These products remove the outer layer of the skin and thus open pores.
Shampoo your hair daily, especially if it is oily.
Try not to squeeze, scratch, pick, or rub the pimples. Although it might be tempting to do this, it can lead to skin infections and scarring. Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers. Avoid greasy cosmetics or creams. Look for water-based or "noncomedogenic" formulas.
Try over-the-counter acne medications, they contain benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, resorcinol, or salicylic acid.
Follow the conservative approach and if symptom persists consult dermatologist they will prescribe oral or topical antibiotics like erythromycin, clindamycin etc. Creams or gels containing Retinoic acid, azelaic acid. These are all prescription medicines.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
