Cure for acne on face and back

Sir I am suffering from acne problem on my face and back from last one and half years. I have taken allopathic treatment and many power peels. the acne became better till i was taking prescribed antibiotics. But once i stopped the allopathic prescriptions, my face and back is again full of red painful pimples and black acnemarks. Also there is lot of pigmentation, black heads, white heads and dark circles . Yerterday I went for HB test and ESR Test. HB is 11.6 and ESR is 25 mm/hr. Please suggest me what should i do?? I am fed up of treatments and antibiotics.

Acne usually takes time to settle.I understand that you have tried various modalities of treatment, but stopping everything at the same time will lead to re occurance.

If you do not want to be on oral antibiotics, you can opt for topical treatment.
Use a face wash specific for oily skin such as neutrogena oil free, use clingard in the morning and Deriva at night.
Do not rub your face and be gentle to your skin.

Please meet your dermatologist for follow up.
