Can you give me suggestions for acne medication that actually works?

Prescription: If acne is confined to the face, there's a 50% chance that topical benzoyl peroxide will clear you. Otherwise, you will need to supplement with prescription-strength treatment from your personal physicain. Acne is a non-lifestyle-related chronic disease that must be managed until it self-cures. Best wishes.
