Which medicines or home remedies should I take for rapid recovery from eye infection ?

Sir I am 20 years old and on advice of an anonymous I applied Garilic to reduce acnes on regions near my lips . I accidentally over did it and after washing with cold water I could see the black burn marks appear. Currently I am using an eye infection ointment my doctor recommended but it s working too slow. Can you suggest any medicine name or home remedies I can employ to reduce them fast ? Thank you

Acne happens because follicles on your face get blocked as a result of a clog of sebum or dead skin cells.

I would advise you to stop the eye ointment, simply because it is for the eyes and not the face.

Wash your face 2-3 times daily with an oil-free face wash. Do not cause the acne to burst with your fingers as they may leave scars behind.

You can start applying a solution of Berberis Aquifolium tincture, with a cotton swab 3-4 times a day. Keep it on for 15 minutes and then just rinse your face with water. You will get the tincture at any homeopathic pharmacy.

All the best!

the lesion is diagnosed as 'acne; is by you or any health professional, why i am asking because , acne around mouth is very rare.. so please ask to doctor for re-examination
Garlic can increase inflammatory process on active acne lesions. so please avoid any application over fave without advice of doctor,
the black marked can be due to irritant contact dermatitis due to garlic. so dont apply anything except sunscreen till the lesion heals.. than u can use depigmentory agents like 2-5% hydroquenon or kojic acid
