In brief: Acne

Facial acne can be mild or become severe.
If the acne is significant it is a good idea to see a dermatologist early on who can teach you about acne and how to prevent it. Meanwhile avoid irritating the skin and do not scrub your face. Eat a healthy diet and avoid "junk" foods especially sugar, candy , cake and avoid most fats except extra virgin olive oil. Do not pick at the acne "zits".

In brief: A few options

For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone.
For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you.
