Brief Answer:
Topical anti acne medication

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have viewed the image and gone through your query.

You seem to have inflammatory acne. I suggest you use a topical Clindamycin and Benzoyl peroxide combination gel (Clindoxyl gel) twice daily. In addition I suggest you to use a mild face wash e.g Cetaphil gentle cleansing lotion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance

Brief Answer:
Regarding milia

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Milia and acne may look similar in an image, though, milia can be easily distinguished from acne on clinical examination. Milia are epidermal keratin cysts. They are asymptomatic and persistent. Creams don't work for milia. Milia are can be easily removed with a fine needle (Guage 26). I suggest that you visit a Dermatologist in your area and they can be easily removed in the same sitting and with excellent cosmetic outcome.

Take care
Let me know if you need any more assistance
