OTC Treatment for Acne


Acne is common and is easily treatable. You may need treatment for several weeks to clear spots. Inflamed acne needs to be treated early to prevent scarring. Once the spots are gone, you may need maintenance treatment for several months to keep the spots away.

Many over-the-counter (OTC) acne products are available to treat mild to moderate acne or periodic breakouts. They include cleansing lotions, gels, foams and towelettes, leave-on products, and treatments or kits.

Here are common active ingredients found in OTC acne products and how they work to treat acne -
  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Salicylic acid
  • Glycolic acid
  • Lactic acid

The best medical treatment for acne often is a combination of medicines. These could include medicine that you put on your skin (topical) and medicine that you take by mouth (oral). Or you may take medicines such as clindamycin/benzoyl peroxide, a gel that contains two topical medicines.
