Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for acne and related problems in yourself.

It is really distressing sometimes to get anything on face in young man of your age.

After reading your query I request you to kindly immediately stop the over the counter cream and send me the details or contents of all the cream you have applied or other medications taken.

I also request you to kindly upload few good resolution pictures of the face so that I can analyze and guide you best. For the same you have a feature on the right side of the page.

Hope to hear soon from your side.

With regards,
