The best treatment for acne depends on your skin type and the root cause of your acne. Many people find that the occasional, mild pimple or breakout can be treated with over the counter drugstore products, such as an acne spot treatment, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Recurring mild to moderate acne may require a prescription topical treatment, such as clindamycin or tretinoin. Severe acne may require an oral antibiotic or isotretinoin regimen. If you have sensitive skin or a condition like eczema or rosacea, you may need to use caution when choosing acne products. While there is not a single “best” treatment, an online or in-person consultation with a medical provider can help you to figure out what will work best for your particular situation.
