What is the cause and remedy for recurring pimples on the back ?

My mother gets small pimples-like on her back. Our family Dr recommended to use Labote-GM (Neo) cream. Whenever she stops using this cream, they come again. What is the reason for this & any solution?

Lobate-GM would infact worsen the tendency of getting pimples . So first it's necessary to stop applying it to limit further damage.
Applying benzac Ac 2.5% gel daily at night over back will be a good starting point before you see a dermatologist in your city and get a proper treatment.
