Brief Answer:
Oral antibiotic and topical benzoyl peroxide gel

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

I suggest you to apply a Benzoyl Peroxide 5% gel, twice daily.
In addition to this you may take a Cap. Doxycycline 100mg, twice daily for 2-4 weeks.
These are prescription medications and I ask you to request your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.

Regards
