Scientific Rx: If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Acne can't be cured but will eventually remit on its own. Until then, you must manage it as a chronic illness.

Salicylic, benzoyl p: You could use over the counter products containing salicylic acid such as mural. However if it extensive or sever you need to see dermatologist for prescription creams and possibly oral medications. Deep cysts untreated can lead to scarring.
