Topical acne agents

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Topical acne agents are applied on the skin to treat mild acne. They contain medicines, which control acne on the surface but may not treat the actual cause beneath the skin. Topical acne formulations either contain antibiotics that destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria that form the pustules or they contain agents that help renew the skin more quickly and therefore reduce acne.
