Question Goin to Doctor, need help fast!!

Hey. I went to the doctor and he perscribed me Clindamycin Phosphate Gel. Also he told me to wash with Oxy 10% BP Maximum Strength Face Wash. These 2 together worked ok, i have been using for about 3 weeks. I need an idea of a gel or cream that will work well. I don't have severe or cystic acne. It's mostly just pimples, and clogged pores. So if someone could tell me somethin to maybe suggest to my doctor or something. Because he isn't a derm or anything. Also, is there anything they can perscribe for hyperpigmentation marks and/or scars? Thanks in advance

Ask for Retin A. You will need to stop using the other stuff though. Note: Retin A is an amazing drug for acne but results are not immediate- and your skin might get worse b4 it gets better. However... this is really the best and keeps acne away long term.
