Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

I can understand your concern regarding acne and will make sure your query is resolved in rightful way.

Acne as you must be aware is a chronic inflammatory condition of sebaceous gland and hair follicle unit. Under the expression of hormones your sebum secretion increases and it is secondarily infected by bacteria and thus causes acne. Majority of people suffer acne during adolescence and early adulthood.
Acne mandates proper management as it has tendency for recurrence and also leave behind complications like pigmentation and scarring.

Usually management for acne is dictated by the grade of acne and for proper grading and thus management it requires actual physical examination by a dermatologist. Therefore I insist you to post me good clinical pictures so that I can guage the severity of acne and thus layout a customized treatment plan for you.
You can either send pictures to me in follow up query or you can mail them to YYYY@YYYY with the subject titled ' ATTN Dr Hardik Pitroda'.

Also mention the following points in history:
1. Ingredients of medications used.
2. Any routine use of cosmetics
3. Any other relevant medical history like menstrual irregularity etc.

Hope you will revert soon with the above mentioned details.
Thank you
