thank you for using health care magic,
acne can occur because of oily skin, hormonal changes etc.. in your case its most likely because of hormonal changes because of sexual activity..
you can try doxycycline 100 mg daily for one month.. apply clindamycin and adapalene gel on face.. well dryness is common side effect i understand that but if you will apply moister then it will enhance pimples..
also change your diet like avoid oily, spicy and fatty food.. avoid pollution.. if you have dendruf in hair it can also act as stimulant for pimples.. use ketoconazol shampoo twice a week
i hope this helps you..

the oily skin leads to sacne and if you treat acne there is dryness by some antiacne agents
due to harmonal changes in body after marriage due to sexual activity the acne occurs after marriage
keep skin dry and sweat free
no toxic and oily soaps shampoo oils cooking oils and body application materials
non oily non greesy non fatyy and non spicy food
add doxycycline 100 mg bd for 10 days and off and on if acne increases
apply clindamycin gel bd
histocalamine od and tretinoic gel at night and switch light off after application at night as it reaxcts with light
continue 3 months and it will be ok
if very dry can apply lighhtest moiturising agent in clindamycn or tretonoic acid gels off and on when need be
