Any physician...: Any licensed physician can treat most acne effectively using a mix of antibiotics and vitamin a derivatives. A dermatologist is required for isotretinoin. I very much hope you'll see scientific rx even though the internet offers you hundreds of often-weird home remedies. Good luck.

Acne: Otc products containing benzoyl peroxide , salicylic acid, or retinol may help mild breakouts . In most cases, prescription strength products are most effective. See a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
