Acne should be treated early to prevent scarring which is more difficult to treat. Treatment is always a combination of different creams or lotions as the causative factors are multiple.

Oral Isotretinoin is recommended for pustular, nodular and scarring acne.
Clearance of acne has been achieved through combination of creams and chemical peels. The peels by exfoliating and reducing oil production are able to clear acne effectively.
