Some options . . .: Fruit in moderation, meaning a little is fine but don't overdo it. For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel or cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. For more help, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also.
