Hello

Sorry for the delay, it took me a while to type down everything.

I would recommend the following:-

Creams would be :-

Application of benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel once a day in the morning on the Pimples.

Application of Glycolic acid cream or Demelan cream on all affected areas.

All the applications will have to be done for 6 weeks.

In case the above measures do not help, then you would require Oral medication, which will be either oral antibiotics or Isotretinoin. But it will require a prescription from your doctor. Hence whenever that is possible, that would be the ideal treatment. But in the current situation, it may not be easy to get an appointment.

These measures will help to clear off the red marks that follow the acne, that is the natural history how acne progresses.

It would be the best to not break your acne, as that can leave marks which are difficult to treat.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

  • Completely remove make-up before going to bed.
