    hello,sorry about this.But its usually very difficult to tackle due to its high recurrent rate.if its very bad,you have to see a dermatologist. meanwhile I can advice you on how to reduce it on your face.Ensure your face is washed twice or thrice a day to keep it dry.you can get salicylate lotion or benzoyl peroxide ilfor washing.it helps keep it dry.Sudocream applied twice a day can help clear the spots left behind by the lesions.Avoid picking the face as it will leave dark spots.see a dermatologist when you can.

    Yes I remember I used DT sometime last year but I can't remember if it was for two weeks,someone suggested I use Nizoral cream,pls how will DT help.

    nizoral is for fungal infection.it won't work for acne. unless what you are describing is actually a fungal infection and not acne.that was why I suggested you allow a dermatologist see and review it.
