Serious Rx: You need to be on medication. In your case, it appears that the oral contraceptive pill did not clear you, though another preparation may. Try not to pick the lesions, but this isn't the key -- you're going to pick them. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in 2 weeks (; it probably won't), your physician may add topical spironolactone, a topical or systemic antibiotic, etc. ...Read more

No: "Pop" remedies (lemon, honey) are cruel pranks. Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best over-the-counter treatment and will clear milder cases of acne. You should not be trying to lighten your skin -- you are likely to disfigure yourself like Michael Jackson did, and in the US (which sets trends worldwide), judging another by skin color is the height of ignorance. Embrace who you are. ...Read more
