I have adult acne
hi, Thank you for consulting with HCM, i understand your concern. Try using Retinol-A 0.025% or Clindac-A sloution 1% on the acne after washing your face thoroughly. Take azithral 250mg twice daily for a course of 5 days if acne is severe. Wash face 4-5 times per day and avoid oily/ junk / spicy food. drink atleast 4-5 litres of water per day. Hope this helps and will solve your acne issues.
