Hi Razvi,
There is nothing wrong in taking salicylic acid peels to reduce pimples as well as there marks, however do not be so reluctant with the use of oral and topical antibiotics. As even with Sali peels you might require a course of antibiotics or topical application of anti acne creams. Sali peels will not only help in reducing acne, pigmentation but will also reduce oiliness. Do not be confused and stick to your doctor's conviction. However as far as comedones control serum or blemish control formula is concerned check the medicine it contains and whether it is useful in acne. Take care.
