Hello doctor,

I got acne on my back. I have attached a picture of it, and I am using 5 % Benzoyl peroxide daily. Is there any medicine that can help me more to get rid of it.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your case. First, you need to understand pimples are common, and you may experience frequent exacerbation due to stress or hormones. Right now, there are very few active lesions, and rests are post-inflammatory pigmentation marks. These hyperpigmentation marks will go away slowly or apply Vitamin C cream two times a day. Keep Clindamycin gel with you and use on pimples two times a day.
