Brief Answer:
Clindamtycin and adapalene combination

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Acne develops in areas rich in sebaceous gland.
Central portion of face, upper chest and back are common sites to develop acne lesions.
Sweating happens all over body but the area rich in sebaceous glands produce more sweat.
Apply clindamycin ointment in morning and adapalene gel in night.
I usually prescribe this combination and have seen good results with it.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
