This is acne

What have you tried?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Nothing much. I tried this Lemon Honey mask, but its irritating. Now I am looking for medical treatment.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
I would start with 2 medicines from your GP

1)clindamycin gel or cream (it's an antibiotic)

2)tretinoin cream or gel

These meds work in combination. It will help your acne a lot

Alternatively you could take an oral antibiotic like doxycycline once per day
