Acne treatment: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products or prescription medications including topical cream with or without oral medications. Don't pick! A dermatologist should be able to help you if the above measures do not improve your skin condition.
