Hi Marchelle

I'd suggest getting Benzac AC5 face wash from your pharmacy (ask the pharmacist!) as a start. Your doctor may also prescribe products such as topical or oral antibiotics (or a combination of the two) to help, while oral contraceptives or something like Roaccutane are other options.

My advice would be to discuss this with a dermatologis!
