In brief: Depends Upon Grade
There are many treatment strategies for acne depending upon the region, extent, and lesion type (comedone, papule, pustule, cyst).
For limited facial acne that is not inflammatory, over-the-counter salicylic pads (stridex) will be useful. For inflammatory acne involving the face, chest, and back, schedule an appointment with a dermatologist for systemic medications including an antibiotic.
