Dear Sabra,

You can try an over the counter benzoyl peroxide wash in the shower. These are inexpensive and very helpful. Please make sure you rinse it all off, or it may stain your clothes.

If after 2 weeks you do not see an improvement, see your dermatologist for a prescription.

I hope that helps
