Hi there. Your acne is caused due to wysolone tablet. It's steroid and acne is one of their major side effect. Treatment includes was your face with warm water every 5-6hrs, avoid oil based sunscreens, moisturizers, have more fluids, topical creams having benzoic acid, salicylic acid, tretinoin, antibiotic gels having clindamycin for fresh pimples.please consult dermatologist once.
