Whiteheads and redness

I had a a few pimples, about three or four on my face. After I started using clindamycin and aziderm my skin began to break out. I usually get a few breakouts, but after using clindamycin gel and aziderm I'm getting random breakouts every hour. They are small whiteheads with redness around them. How do I get my skin back to normal.

Skin care needs to be customized based on the presenting complaints. There are different ways to achieve a flawless skin after acne and it needs medical interventions. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequalae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis. Acne scar and pores can be treated with subcision, dermaroller, fractional CO2 lasers, chemical peels and likewise. Remember combining treatment modalities help to achieve desired results earlier. Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results.
