the oily secretions in skin causes acne and only best agent working on skin acne is doxycycline and minocycline
keep skin dry and airy and sweat free
ointments creams and other applications on skins should be discontinued for some months
use non toxic soaps shampoo oils and body application materials
use of non oily non greesy and non spicy foods lot of warm water in diets
if you can withdraw milk and diary proteins completely from diet for 3 months
take antiallergic ebastine 10 mg sos for itch
doxycycline 100 mg bd for 2 weeks now and sos if it is infected pimples on skin
apply clindamycin gel bd on face and calamine once a day
apply tretinoic acid gel at night before sleep and switch off light as it reacts with light
