Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your query on ATD.

Acne is a disease of sebaceous gland duct blockage /infection.
Usually, it takes 4 to 5 months of treatment to control the disease. After control, you have to maintain daily regime to avoid recurrence. There is no medicine that can control acne in a week. Have patience & faith in your dermatologist. You will be cleared of your acne lesions.

Best wishes
