Brief Answer:
Use benzoyl peroxide

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Faceclin is good but it's not sufficient alone.
You can use it in combination with benzoyl peroxide 2.5 % cream.
You can use benzoyl peroxide in night and faceclin in day.
If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
You can even mail me photographs on YYYY@YYYY with subject as ATTN Dr Rahul Kumar.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.
Thank you.

Based on your description, you may use aziderm 10 % cream in night and continue with faceclin in morning. This combination works well and does not cause allergy.
