I have lot of acne due to lot of large pores which eventually cause acne. They never seem to stop. I am using Acnil soap, also going for a clean up session in 15 days which is in a parlor for exfoliating. I also apply XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Kantilep, but at the end all is in vain. Please help me.

Thank you for consulting HealthcareMagic!
Acne are usually caused by excessive oil production by skin which is added up with some bacterial infection. One thing I want to advice is about the do not's that you need to follow: First and foremost thing is not to use wide variety of cosmetics, do not wash your face excessively, never prick or squeeze the pimples.

Coming to the actual answer, I want to advise you that there are some medications which are only used as a last resort after all the conservative measures fail. These include some retinoid containing medicines. However, these are used with extreme caution as they have some side effects and only under the guidance of an XXXXXXX Medicine doctor or Dermatologist after physical examination.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, please let me know!
