Acne comedones: Comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) are a type of acne. Medications that work well for comedones include benzoyl peroxides, retinoinds (like retin a, (tretinoin) adapalene, tazarotene) and sulfur-based topical creams or lotions. All these can be irritating so one should start using them slowly and gradually increase the frequency.
