Patient Comments: Acne (Pimples) - Controlling Your Acne

What treatments or products have you used to control your acne (pimples)?

Comment from: mom, Female (Caregiver) Published: December 16

I tried castor oil on my daughter's acne. It works. Coat your acne area, use steamer to steam for 10 min, and go to bed. Next morning, the acne is so much better.
