hi..thanks for your query
Acne is a chronic and recurrent condition for most.Treatment need to be changed or customized from time to time with a dermatologist and during its course you may see various forms and severity of acne.Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure of acne.With adequate treatments, you can achieve a very good clear skin .YOU are taking correct medications.You may also follow these steps:
1)Use Salicylic 2% based gel twice daily to wash your face .Do not over wash your face ; if you do o , the body starts producing more oil to compensate the loss of poi due to cleansing.So restrict washing to 2-3 times a day maximum.
2) Use only non comedogenic preparations on your face.Like sunscreen and moisturizers should be gel based and from a good brand which mentions 'non-comedogenic' in its packaging
3)You can go ahead with a few sessions of Salicylic peels once in 15 days and get your come domes extracted regularly with a qualified dermatologist to reduce pimples further.
Hope this is helpful..take care!
