In brief: Scientific Rx

You might start with benzoyl peroxide, and if this doesn't clear you in two weeks (it probably won't) ask your physician about adding topical Clindamycin or something similar, and maybe a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads.
If it's just your face this may be enough; otherwise a systemic antibiotic may be a next step. All acne can be managed.
