Hi.Acne is a recurrent problem.Depending upon your grade of Acne,your treatment protocol is devised.Sometimes,only topical preparations like Clindamycin are not enough to control the same.Systemic antibiotics like Doxycycline,Minocycline,Azithromycin may be required or oral retinoids like Isotretinoin may also be needed.Kindly revert back with your picture for me to guide you better.
