Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Acne is a hormonal disorder.

When untreated or improperly treated acne can cause pigmentation and ugly scars on face.

You should apply antibiotic like clindamycin in morning for 2 hours.

Adapalene should be applied at night time.

Washing your face with Himalaya neem face wash would be helpful.

Oral drugs should be taken along with creams.

Please visit a good dermatologist or physician for proper examination and treatment with prescription drugs for acne.

Hope this helps.
