Hi, thanks for posting,

You seem to have developed irritant dermatitis due to application of garlic paste over your acne lesion, which has resulted in redness.

Apply a hydrocortisone cream twice a day for a few days .once the burning and redness is gone , you may apply medicated creams for acne like clindamycin , benzoyl peroxide combination .

If there is a black mark , then kojic cream can be applied

use a mild cleanser like cetaphil

apply non comedogenic sunscreen during the day

you may consult a dermatologist nearby for proper acne treatment according to the severity of acne

Hope this helps you
