Hellow Richa,
You have the disease called Late onset acne vulgaris which is usually erupt after age of 30. For severe acne, u have to take topical as well as oral medicines to control the disease, certain good drugs are contraindicated in those women who are planning for baby, but other drugs are very safe and u can try ... The best therapy for u will be
1. Oral minocyclin 100 mg daily 1 tab
2. Topical clindamycin ointment. In morning
3. Benzoyl peroxide ointment 2.5 % in night
Face wash to reduce oilyness on ur face
Some general measures will also help u
Low fat diet, avoid chocolates and fast foods
Hope this will help u

General & Family Physician Dr. Lasantha Ranwala's  Response

first of all i must tell you please stop treating your diseases by your self. Some time you may have face unpleasant outcome from that

So about your acne problems there are several treatment methods available for the acne. It may be be a local application of cream or a anti-acane soap or oral intake of some antibiotics. According to severity of your condition you will be give one of them or few of these treatments. So better to consult a doctor.

I would like to give few advises to you.Limit intake of oily foods. keep you face clean and don't scratch your face with your fingers .it may infect them. Avoid using different kind of creams and lotions advertise on media as some of these preparation may be allergic to your skin and you may develop allergic reaction.

wish you a good health
