Depends: This depends upon what the inflammation is caused by. This is an easy question to answer. See an eye doctor. Is the cost of a visit worth your vision? The eye is not a structure you should fool with yourself (if there are any).

Acne Therapy: Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. With most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. There are topicals like ziana and epiduo and oral medication like solodyn (minocycline). See your dermatologist.
