In brief: Quite a few options

For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel or cream is quite helpful.
If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel or cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If quite severe, a dermatologist helps.
