Thanks for your query. You can make some changes in your daily lifestyle. You can incorporate a salicylic based face wash that will deeply exfoliate and prevent the formation of whiteheads. For the existing whiteheads, use tretin 0.025% at night that will help dissolve the whiteheads and give you a clear skin. Don’t forget your sun block. Hope it helps.

Uncontrolled acne seeking treatments

You need to see a dermatologist for this. Topicals, orals, and chemical peels are the mainstay of treatment. Sometimes lasers are needed.
