A:   You are suffering from Acne vulgaris. Do not panic or get depressed, it can be managed easily by oral antibiotics and topical application of ointments and astringent lotions prescribed by a Dermatologist. It'll take about 6-8 weeks for any noticeable difference in your appearance, so be patient and be regular with your therapy.
