Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic

Can you upload a photo so that I am better able to help?
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to use salicylic acid facewash twice daily and apply adapelene 0.1 percent gel on the pimples at night.
If the acne is severe I would recommend to take oral antibiotic like capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily at bedtime for 3-4 weeks.
Besides this avoid oiling of scalp, intake of sugary foods and use cosmetics labelled as non-comedogenic.
