Ask your local pharmacist, or try natural products for acne.

Acne is a genetic condition and anxiety will just make it more pronounced. Washing a lot of times will make it worse. The majority of medicines and creams will not fight the cause but will just cover the symptoms. The only medicine that can have an impact is Isotretinoin but would recommend you not to take it. Exercising, eating vegetables and stop consuming caw’s milk products (you can eat goat milk) will improve your condition.
