In brief: Comprehensive Rx

Tea tree oil may be helpful.
There are some uncomfirmed studies with colored lights acting on the bacterias' porphyrins. Benzoyl peroxide might be acceptable to someone seeking a "non-drug" rx. Acne is a chronic disease that can have serious personal consequences; supplement as you will, your physician can help also fairly safely if you'll allow yourself the benefits of all of 21st century science.
