Majority-->OTC: Most people find improvement with over-the-counter meds. If you are not, should see a dermatologist for assistance.

Acne: Home remedies i don't know. Medically you have to know first whether acne is mild, moderate or severe. If mild and moderate use stridex in am and clearsil in pm. If acne is cystic, nodular or recalcitrant, please see dermatologist for other options. Thanks.
