I can understand about your concern for acne and post acne spots.
Acne vulgaris is a multifactorial skin disease. Along with medicine,you should take few steps to control the new acne lesions:

-Avoid stress and tension.
-Take precautions to reduce oiliness of the face
-Get treatment for dandruff, if it is there
-Avoid oily food
-Take proper sleep
-Avoid drugs like steroids..etc.
-Take Minocycline daily on empty stomach. Apply Clindamycine gel on the lesions.
-Do face wash containing Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid.

Hello Doctor i have been experiencing excessive pimples since September. When they go away, they leave dark spots. Someone suggested me to apply Tenovate-M to get rid of spots faster; and so i did. but the usage did not show any results. i recently visited a doctor and he told that Tenovate-M is the cause of these pimples and that it affects adversely, one should never use it. i wanted to ask is it true? i m worried about my face ever since. Can u please suggest some remedy for my face? Thank you
