Scientific Rx: If two weeks on over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you, get with your physician.

Consider topical Clindamycin along with whatever's worked so far, move further only if required. Glad you're a caring mother, good luck. ...Read more

Forgive my frankness: You're asking for "drug-free alternatives", yet you are taking Isotretinoin and you have already got acne scars. You need to decide what you want. No "natural" / "pop" / "magic" remedy is going to match scientific medicine's effectiveness in managing a very serious personal and professional liability.
