Treating mild acne

This should be seen by a dermatologist. Typically, this can be treated with topical medications including Retin A and antibiotic creams. Occasionally, laser are useful for acne as well.

See dermatologist for acne

There are many ways to treat this, including PDT and light therapy all the way to anti hormones and even high dose synthetic Vitamin A tablets. I suggest you see a dermatologist (medical not procedural) for treatment. All the best, Dr Davin Lim . Brisbane. Australia.
