thanks for posting your query.

i can understand your concern.

i recommend that you use a salicylic acid face wash twice a day.

also its important to use creams to control the acne as maintenance after the peels, or else there is a recurrence of acne.

Treatment of acne would be oral medication, creams and daily skin care routine which further helps in acne.

Oral medication will be tablet doxycycline 100 mg once a day for 4 weeks.

Creams would be application of clindamycin gel twice a day only on the Pimples. Application of benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel once a day on the Pimples. Application of Retin A cream 0.025% on full face at night for 2 hrs.
All the applications will have to be done for 6 weeks.
