Hi,

Acne, that is commonly known as Pimples can occur due to a number of reason / causes like blocked or clogged pores, oily skin, unhealthy diet, hormonal imbalances, inflammation etc. In case if pimples are getting worse along with topical application of ointment or gel, you might also need oral medicines to get better soon, so I would advise you to consult a Skin Specialist and get yourself checked.

Along with Erytop-A gel you can also be advised to to use Salicylic acid containing facewash. You can also use a face scrub to scrub your face. You can be advised to apply Benzoyl peroxide containing gel / ointment. Do cool compresses over the pimples. Avoid eating oily foods and eat more of green vegetables and drink plenty of water. You can also be advised to take oral medicines like Minocycline and Isotretinoin. But you should take any medicine only after consulting a Skin Specialist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Honey Arora, Dentist
