How to Control Pimples and Acne ?

Hi Michael,
A good skin cleanser can help. There are numerous over the counter preparations that can help. Many contain agents that peel off a layer of skin and dry up the acne. Sometimes the non prescription medications are not enough so you need to see a dermatologist who will prescribe antibiotics and other topical preparations that can help. As last resort Acutane can be prescribed.
Thank you for using Allexperts
