Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Elliot. Thank you for your question. Have you got a photo of your skin?
Thanks, ***** ***** you using on your skin or have used so far?
Thanks, ***** ***** first thing to try is Benzoyl Peroxide, you can get this over the counter, this dries the spots out. If that doesn't work, or if you are sensitive to it, you can use a retinoid, which is again is available from a pharmacist.
After that you can use a combination treatment which also has antibiotics, but this would require a prescription from your doctor. Next up from that is an oral antibiotic.
Start with Benzoyl peroxide for a few weeks start.

Try the low dose version first
Or if it does irritate the skin, jump straight to a topical antibiotic, it doesn't tend to irritate the skin
Does this help at all? Alternatively you could address the skin products you use first, but I would get it under control with medicated creams first
If you ask a pharmacist, they will be able to find it for you
Does that help answer your question and start you off in managing this?
