The best over the counter remedies are Freederm facial wash and treatment gel. An American product called Dr Murad claims to give 90% results in 4 weeks, but don't use if you have sensitive skin as it's very strong. When you do get health insurance get a topical lotion from your doctor the best ones are Duac gel, Differin and Dalacin-T. Your doctor could also give oral antibiotics such as erythromycin or oxytetracycline. You could also go on an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Dianette (Diane 35 in USA). And don't worry, i have acne too and I'm 31 love loiloi xx
