How to treat acne
For mild acne, there are a variety of treatments you can use on your skin and that are available in the pharmacy.

• For effective treatment, be sure to follow the instructions, don’t use the product in excess, and be sure to apply the treatment every day for several weeks. You may notice signs of irritation at the beginning, but these will disappear over time.

For moderate to severe acne, there are various treatments available with a prescription from your doctor. These may take the form of a cream to be applied on the skin or an oral medication such as antibiotics or hormonal treatments (e.g. certain contraceptive pills).

• If you have difficulty treating your acne, or if it’s affecting your self-esteem or causing you to isolate yourself, be sure to consult a doctor to find a solution.
