Q: How to get rid of pimples on face?

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Getting rid of excessive pimples can be treated using a number of different methodologies. To ensure success, we would like you to have your face evaluated by a doctor to determine what will be the best treatment for you. Common treatments include the daily use of a benzoyl peroxide facial cleanser, along with oral antibiotics to kill the bacteria that can cause acne. We also recommend that you try to avoid heavy pore clogging make up, scented or coloured moisturizers, oily sunscreens. This will help in reducing breakouts of pimples on your face.
