Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Acne is a hormonal disorder.

When untreated acne can cause pigmentation and ugly scars on face.

Fortunately it is treatable now.

You should apply antibiotic like clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide on the affected skin 2-3 times.

Himalaya neem capsules dont have any side effect as they are herbal products.You can take it empty stomach.
As it is herbal product effect will be seen atleast after a month.

Washing your face with Himalaya neem face wash would be helpful.

Please visit a good dermatologist or physician for proper examination and treatment with prescription drugs for acne.

Hope this helps.
