Yes: But stick to agents that are labelled 'non comedogenic'. And use as small amount as needed and i would not apply in conjunction with topical acne meds.

I have a small acne pimple on my right cheek for two months now. I hav tried benzoyl peroxide but its just not going how do I get rid of it?
See a dermatologist: This sounds like a deeper, more inflammatory lesion and will not likely respond to topical treatment. Sometimes these lesions respond to oral antibiotics and occasionally they may need to be treated with a low dose injected steroid. See your dermatologist to help determine what is going on and what would be best for you. ...Read more

Serious Rx: You need to get with a physician. Cleansers aren't going to help. Monitoring your diet is good advice. I'm going to assume you've tried benzoyl peroxide without being cleared. Chances are that your physician may add a topical antibiotic, topical spironolactone, or (if it's right for you) the oral contraceptive pill, and you can end this suffering, managing it until it self-cures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Acne &moisturizer: My favorite thing for moisturizing anyone who has acne prone skin is vit c serum. Vit c is a great antioxidant, it is antiinflmatory so or is soothing and if you find the right one it is non comeogenic-meaning it won't clog up the pores. Image skin care makes a great vit serum that my patients love. It really helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
