If you can't go to a dermatologist then your next best thing is otc meds. Maybe try a face wash for acne prone skin that contains either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid and use this morning and night. Also try an otc acne med like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to help dry up and prevent future breakouts and put a thin layer on the entire affected area but don't over do it. If at first your face gets a little dried out then try an OIL FREE moisturizer such as nuetrogena until your skin adjusts. Maybe even try taking a zinc supplement. Some say it's just as effective as an antibiotic. MAKE SURE though that you don't go over 50 mg the first month then after the first month reduce it to 30 or so mg. Some say you need to also supplement with copper since zinc depletes your body of copper. You can even talk to your pharmicist to get more information on how much to take. Hope this helps. If not try to save up enough for the doctor.
