Use salicylic acid others give pimples, cannot completely clean. Had good skin with anti allergic medicine, high liver enzymes

23 yrs old, male , i cannot use any of the cosmetic face wash or even a cream on my face as i usually end up getting pimples with them and skin gets kind of "dirty" with them ( i don"t know how to explain it better) , the only thing which seems working is salicylic acid facewash but it seems it cannot completly clean the skin. the best thing which works is when i used to be on anti allergic medicine( cetrizine) but since i stopped it skin reverted to being pimple prone.
i also have raised liver enzymes but heptologist have ruled it as "insignificant"

Hi, your skin is oily, so you get acne frequently.You feel face dirty, as the skin is seborrheic, i.e. exsessively oily. Salicylic acid and glycolic acid containing face wash will work better. All dirty remnants and oil will be removed. And chances of acne development will be reduced. Avoid stress, anxiety, excessive exercise. Take good sleep. Avoid milk,ghee and excessive oily food. Avoid exposure to sun. Be calm and cool. Along with this, take cap minocycline 50 mg once a day on empty stomach in morning for about three months. Apply clindamycine gel at night on lesions... Ok . You will be alright
