  1. Hi Akash,
    Welcome to MediMetry.I can understand your concern.
    Having pimples in this age is normal. you don't need to worry. There may be a number of reasons of having pimples in this age like.
    1. Hormonal changes
    2. Junk food
    3. Low consumption of green vegetables and fruits.
    4. Less body workout.

    You can do following things that can help you in acne treatment
    a. Wash your face once or twice daily with salicylic acid soap ( available as Acnelak) and water. This is to remove excess oil from the skin. After washing your face, use an oil free moisturizer.
    b. Don’t scrub as this worsens your acne.
    c. Apply Benzaclin ointment in the day time. This will help treat the pimples
    d. At night, apply 0.1% adapalene gel on the whole face. Dont apply in the day time as this can react with the sun and cause a reaction. This would cause some dryness and redness but this would gradually become better over a period of time.
    e. If it still does not become better, please see a dermatologist for a prescription of oral antibiotics like doxycycline, azithromycin etc.
    h. Eat Fresh vegetables and fruits having rich in Vitamin C.
    i. Drink 3-4 lt water a day.
