Brief Answer:
Oral and topical anti-acne medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I suggest you to take an oral antibiotic e.g Azithromycin daily for 5 days. In addition to this you may apply a topical Clindamycin and Benzoyl Peroxide combination gel (Clindoxyl gel), twice daily for a week.These are prescription medications and I advice you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
