Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

I am Dr. Kakkar. I have gone through your query and I have understood it.

Ointments are greasy and can cause acne like eruptions.

I would suggest topical benzoyl peroxide gel (Benzac-AC 2.5% gel) to be applied twice daily over the affected area.

Regards
