I am 23 years male. I have acne vulgaris so I consulted a doctor and he prescribed me 'Resoten 20 mg capsule, Azil 500 tablet and corex gel' But now I am in Pune and I can't get Azil 500 and corex gel here. Can you tell me a good alternative for those medicines?

Commonly prescribed topical antibiotics for acne vulgaris include clindamycin, erythromycin, or, more recently, dapsone. Topical dapsone is a new sulfone antibiotic with anti-inflammatory properties that has been shown to be effective for mild-to-moderate acne, and it has a convenient once-daily application schedule.
