Benzoyl peroxide is an extremely mild topical medication, and is used commonly to treat acne. Studies have proven that it is safe for adults and children as well as pregnant women.

The properties that make benzoyl peroxide useful in treating the condition are –

It is an antiseptic: The product acts on the skin surface, reducing the number of bacteria and yeasts. It has the edge on antibiotics in that it doesn’t cause bacterial resistance to develop. It may actually reverse any resistance built up due to prior medications.

Acts as an oxidizing agent: Benzoyl peroxide is comedolytic; it reduces the number of comedones on the skin’s surface.

2. Azelaic acid

Azelaic acid is found naturally, as the by-product of the yeast (Pityrosporum ovale) living on healthy skin. It is available as a non-prescription drug, either as a gel or as a cream. It is applied directly to the skin, and it acts by exfoliating dead cells from the skin, thus preventing the clogging of pores.

3. Topical Retinoids

Retin-A (Tretinoin): This is a derivative of vitamin A. It helps by reducing inflammation, fighting bacteria and opening blocked pores. It comes in the form of a cream or a gel, and is applied directly to the affected area.

Caution: Retin-A (Tretinoin) can cause peeling of the skin, causing photosensitivity, irritation and redness.

Adapalene: This is a topical retinoid closely related to Retin-A. However, it is much milder than Retin-A and may cause less skin irritation.
