Decrease secretion: You need a product that penetrates and diminishes the output of the sebaceous glands. Generally speaking this should consist of a regimen that includes salicylic acid and retinoids

OTC: use OTC benzoyl peroxide cram or gel (Benzac ) 5-10% 2-3 times daily. Wash face with baby soap. Use no other skin products or makeup until resolved.
