Greetings. You need to understand that acne is a chronic problem; and treatment of outbreaks will need short course of antibiotics. You may also need a longer course of oral retinoids with due evaluation by the dermatologist near you. Also applying benzoyl peroxide based creams will help. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
