In brief: Yes and yes

It will irritate your skin but will clear mild acne in about two weeks if you apply it aggressively.
It's the best first choice for treatment. If you are not clear in two weeks, get with your physician. Acne is a serious, chronic non-lifestyle-related disease that is often a major personal and professional liability, and that can always be managed. Best wishes.
