Dear Bhagyasree,

Acne at your age is very common, due to the hormonal changes occurring in the body.
A single visit to the dermatologist might not have helped, but with regular follow-up, professional advice will get you the best result with longlasting effect. Especially since you have painful acne lesions, they might be infected, and need attention.
There are several kind of acne, and applying supatret C might or might not be suitable for your skin.
Your dermatologist can help you with one or all of the below:
1. Topical applications
2. Chemical peels
3. LASER treatment for acne
4. Oral retinoids
5. Oral antibiotics

Please do not try to treat your acne without medical guidance.

Regards,
