Brief Answer:
Remedy for acne

Detailed Answer:
Hi

you may use this cream for minor eczema, insect bite etc but not for acne or acne marks.
For acne and dark spots you may use Clindac- A solution 1% for day time use and Deriva CMS gel(Adapalene 0.1% + Clindamycin 1%) for night application. These should be sufficient if you have mild to moderate grade of acne. For more severe grade of acne you may also need oral medication.
