Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I believe that you have Acne vulgaris. Acne vulgaris is a medical condition in which the re are a lot of pimples or acne appearing on the face and they are infected. These pimples will need antibiotic treatment and Retinoic acid for help.In this aspect, you are getting the right treatment. I recommend that you continue the treatment and be patient for another month. If the acne does not resolve, you can see another Doctor for a 2nd opinion or get laser therapy done to help you.This should help you. Wishing you the best of health.
