See your doctor: The condition needs a diagnosis. If it is acne, then their are several treatments available, ranging from accutane, to exfoliator scrubs, to zinc multivitamins. If there is obvious bacterial infection, then your dr may consider a 30 day trial of antibiotics. You will need counseling concerning the use of these pills, which includes (importantly) adequate contraception, skin hydration, psych screen
