Brief Answer:
Antibiotic therapy is needed in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I understand your concern.

You seem to have relapsed and recurrent form of acne vulgaris.

For this I advise you go for oral antibiotic therapy for 14 days.


I advise you to take Tab Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day on day 1 followed by 100 mg once a day for 14 days.

This should clear all your acne quite comfortably.

Likewise I advise you to apply Adapalene Gel once a day at bedtime.

Its very effective against white heads.

Please note these drugs should be taken under medical supervision.

Use non medicated soaps like Dove thrice daily.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.
