Acne is not something that goes away "fast" but, of all the wonderful acne therapies that are available, the best for someone with acne as yours would be a combination of prescription pills and topical creams. This requires that you see a dermatologist, or skin doctor, to prescribe them for you. Be well.

Acne treatments

Thank you for your question. Multiple treatment options are available to treat acne; however, treatment depends on the individual's type of acne and skin. Assessing your acne from photographs is difficult, but after looking at your photos, it looks like you suffer from a combination of acne: inflammatory lesions (red bumps), comedones (whiteheads and blackheads), and cystic lesions. Combination therapy with topical antibiotics and retinoids, and an oral antibiotic will be a good place to start, but I recommend you consult with a dermatologist to discuss extensively regarding other treatment options. With that being said, no matter what treatment you start, please be patient. It takes at last 6-8 weeks to notice mild improvement, and you must be consistent with the treatment plan. Again, I highly suggest you consult with a dermatologist to evaluate your skin and to develop a treatment plan that best suits your needs. Take care and good luck.
