From the Health Library of SterlingMedicalAdvice.com: How Can I Prevent Acne?
You can prevent pimples by keeping your face clean and your hands away from your face. Use any good cleanser or soap to gently wash the affected area two to three times daily. You treat most cases of mild acne with over-the-counter lotions or creams containing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. You can also try dietary or herbal products like arnica, zinc, and tea tree oil.
If herbal or over-the-counter products do not work, a doctor may recommend a prescription medicine that can be applied to the skin or taken orally. If you have more than 10 blemishes on one side of your face or they are deep, painful and swollen, you should see a doctor. People over the age of 25 with acne may also need a doctor’s care for acne.
