Have acne. Will Dalacin T lotion help? What is the cause?

Hello, I am an Asian boy which is 16 years old. I have acne in the recent 2 weeks in which i didn t have any before. I guess it was about my new hired domestic helper, she didn t rinse my towel with water after she washed with washing powder, or whatever. Is that a cause to my problem? Therefore, I go to a doctor and tell him my situation, then he offered me a treatment of tetralysal 300 mg cap of 7 days. Also, I am given a Dalacin-T Lotion and Stiemycin Topical Solution 2%, the doctor wants me to try each on half of my face, to see which is appropriate for me. Do you think his treatment is effective?

hi asian boy..
pimples or acne is not because of towel being not rinsed. your doctor has given the right medicine but i feel two antibiotic solutions are not needed. Either of them is sufficient. if u continue to get more lesions pls consult a dermatologist who might prescribe isotretinoin.
