thanks for using healthcare magic.
i will be glad to be of assistance.

acnoff soap is good, but a soap alone will not give complete resolution of acne in your case. you will need to treat it with an antibiotic called doxycycline 100 mg once a day and also anti acne creams.

also instead of acnoff soap, even salicylic acid face wash would be a good idea.

i hope you have not been picking up on any of the acne lesions as that will lead to deep scars and pigmentation.
if there are active lesions, they also need to be treated.

first of all creams that you can apply.

you need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen , creams daily.

cleanse your face with cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.

sunscreen needs to be used daily , once every 4 hrs.

creams would be:-

clindamycin gel on the active acne lesions in the morning and retinoic acid 0.025% cream at night on the entire face.

retinoic acid cream needs to be applied only at night, start with coming it for 2 hours and then gradually increase the time interval to keep it overnight.

chemical peels will also help and can be done with salicylic acid.

it will take a while but surely everything will clear up.

hope i have answered all your queries.

if you have any further queries, i will be glad to be of assistance.
