Thanks for writing your query to us.

You can continue taking Roxid & applying the medicines(Seboderm with Clindamycin). Along with this you also need to follow few more skin care tips.

Drink plenty of water. This will help to flush out toxins & keep skin hydrated.

Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a Cetaphil Cleansing lotion.
Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated.

Dont pop pimples. Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple coming try to apply ice on it. This reduces the inflammation & swelling.

Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.

If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose.

If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don't allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.

Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say "noncomedogenic" or "nonacnegenic" on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.

Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.

Protect your skin from the sun. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.

Take care.
