Acne treatments directory
There are many treatments that can help clear up acne, depending on the severity of the condition. Some spots require no treatment, while creams or gels, such as benzoyl peroxide, are available over the counter for self treatment. If the problem is more severe, your GP may suggest prescription- strength gels, cream or tablets. Topical treatments include vitamin A-related isotretinoin, antibiotic or azelaic acid creams and gels. Oral treatments include vitamin A-related isotretinoin or antibiotic tablets.
