Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well.

Benzoyl peroxide: Forget 'natural'. Acne is a serious, chronic, incurable disease unrelated to hygiene or lifestyle. It's a grave personal and professional liability. If topical benzoyl peroxide in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. If you have scars, you're probably a candidate for isotretinoin. ...Read more

What is the best and strongest acne product to get clear skin quick?

No quick fix: If it's a week before the prom, phone your physician. Chances are you'll get topical Clindamycin or systemic tetracycline plus 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day. Acne is manageable until it self-cures. Please think about long-term care for yourself, and ignore people who "don't think acne should be treated.". ...Read more
