In brief: Depends Upon Extent

For limited and localized acne, topical therapy would be indicated using benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid preparations.
If large surface areas are involved including the face, chest, and back with large inflammatory painful lesions, then systemic antibiotics would be more practical. These may be prescribed by your physician.
