welcome to healthcaremagic forum
acne is due to hormonal and heredity reason
there is also infection
nows a day many types of treatment is there to treat any type of acne
better to consult dermatologist
you have oily face ,so you need face wash with salicylic .
isotretinoin will do wonder ,must be taken after dr prescription
peeling ,laser ,microderma will do better
depend upon the type and stage you will require antibiotic
avoid oily and spicy ,dairy product
only water will not work
avoid sun exposure
never prick ,popped it
keep your nail trim .

continue taking lots of water..apart from that use benzoic peroxide ointment before going to bed..wash your face often with running water..cut down oily foods..if its very severe start a antibiotic like tablet azee 500mg before food for three days..take care..
