^^ This. Going to the doctors is by far the best choice; the medication works reeeaally well plus its all free.

Seriously, forget all the treatments you can get at Tesco - go straight to your doctors.
I am currently on doxycycliene tablets, which stops me getting 99% of spots, as well as isotrex gel. The gel is for the remaining 1%, which makes them go down in 2-4 days as opposed to a week.
Prior to that, I was on oxytetracycliene and some sort of topical cream, but I became immune to those and they stopped working.
Depending how bad your spots are, you might be put on Accutane or Roaccutane, which is powerful stuff with a lot of side effects, but it clears up your skin rapidly.

it depends how bad you have it, and a number of other factors.
for some people, simply eating less chocolate will clear it up 100%. for others, roaccutane is the ONLY thing that effects it in any way.
and o yeah, if its anything beyond occasional, and small amounts of acne, go straight to the doc. no point in wasting time/money on anything you can easily buy.
and finally, isolated examples people tell you are practically worthless too. hence, unless this thread gets 50+ responses, you can't gain any single useful treatment advice from it.
