None of them: Benzoyl peroxide over-the-counter is your best bet. Your physician can clear up acne no matter how severe. If you have adult responsibility for a teen with acne, you need to remember that acne is not his/her fault, isn't from being dirty, and junior deserves the best that 21st century science can give. Please make effective treatment abailable.
