Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Acne has effective treatment in allopathy.But you need 6 to 8 weeks in most of them to get effects.Usually i prescribe retinoid benzoyl peroxide containing preparations for local application. For some i combine oral antibiotics like doxycycline or azithromycine with that as monthly pulse therapy.You shouldnt irritate or rub skin by overwashing or squeezing acne.You can do gentle face wash with some acne soap twice daily.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
I find this answer helpful
