Thanks for writing to us.
Acne is a common skin problem specially during teenage and is mainly due to hormonal changes in the body. There are many remedies of acne according to the type of acne. You need to consult your dermatologist for diagnosis of type- nodular, vesicular, etc and further treatment. Till then try to maintain a good hygiene and have plenty of fluids. Topical antibiotics and isotretinoin might help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
