Hi
Treatment of acne vulgaris should be directed toward the known pathogenic factors, including follicular hyperproliferation, excess sebum, P acnes, and inflammation. The most appropriate treatment is based on the grade and severity of the acne.

The following medications are used in the treatment of propionibacterium acne vulgaris:

Retinoid-like agents

Antibiotics

Selective aldosterone antagonist

Acne products

When a topical or systemic antibiotic is used, it should be used in conjunction with benzoyl peroxide or topical retinoid to reduce the emergence of resistance.

Diet therapy, such as a low-glycemic diet and avoidance of “junk foods,” has been suggested as a nonpharmacologic measure to manage acne vulgaris

Procedural treatments for acne vulgaris include the following:

Manual extraction of comedones

Intralesional steroid injections

Superficial peels that use glycolic or salicylic acid
consult dermatologist they will do the needful
