Dermatologist 's  Response
Treatment of acne would be oral medication,  creams and daily skin care routine which further helps in acne. Oral medication will be tablet doxycycline 100 mg once a day for 4 weeks. Creams would be application of clindamycin gel twice a day only on the Pimples. Application of benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel once a day on the Pimples. Application of Retin A cream 0.025% on full face at night for 2 hrs.
All the applications will have to be done for 6 weeks.
All these medications will require a prescription from your GP.
you need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen , creams daily.cleanse your face with cetaphil cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.sunscreen needs to be used daily , neutrogena would be a good choice.
