Teenager and pimples

My 16 year old has pimples and have tried face washes and other things but it doesn''t get better. Can I get something for them over the counter or I will need a doctor''s prescription?

Hi Mom

Your OTC options are fairly limited. Creams such as the ones containing Benzoyl Peroxide (i.e. Bezac AC5 which is also available as a face wash) are probably your best option right now.

If this does however not clear, prescription options would be your best bet.

All the best!
