In brief: Acne and Scarring

It depends on what type of acne you have.
There are different types of acne. Benzoyl peroxide, which is over the counter, is used for papular and pustular acne, which is the red inflamed acne. Tretinion is used for comedonal acne. Topical antibiotics are another choice for acne. Often, more than one type of treatment is needed depending on your skin. Treatment for the scars varies as well.
