In brief: Acne treatment

That is not a decision you have to make as your doctor will prescribe it for you.
Acne is not caused by bacteria and the infection of the comedone is a secondary process that leads to inflammation and needs extraction and proper antibiotic for 7-14 days. Antibiotics do not prevent Acne and prolonged use is not advised.
