hi Divya,
welcome to HCM
this is most common prob, so do not worry, you should start ointment Retino-A at night over acne, wash your face freqently, take protine riched diet, n vitamin C riched diet, after this trial you will feel better just after 10 to 15 days.

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
ur dermatologist has prescribe the best drug available .
only u should take caution .
pregnancy must be avoided during this treatment
there is chance of dryness ,oral stomatitis etc may be there
but it is nominal and need not to worry
he must have given some cream also .
u need to wait for 6-8 weeks to see result
but this drug will surely give u result
dont take it ur own after completion of course.
