Thank you for your question. It is hard to give exact recommendations without a photo. However, it is safe to start with an over the counter benzoyl peroxide 5% wash every other day alternating with salicylic acid acne wash every other day. If you alternate these 2 medications in the shower daily it can provide a good improvement in most patients. If your acne is moderate to severe, often medications taken by mouth are needed to give a better level of control. If this is the case I recommend for you to see a dermatologist. I wish you the best.
