    Ali, the best is to visit good dermatologist. If u have continuous acne (due to some hormone issue) then you have to continue on medicine. If you are in Karachi, then visit dr daulat ram pinjani in taj medical center near sea breeze. he is very good derm and will resolve acne issue. if u have severe acne then go for roacutane but only with dr consultation. Keep your skin dry. Use acne aid soap or acne face wash twice a day.
