Topical antibiotics are very useful in the treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris, however, no role in treating the comedonal phase of the disease. Erythromycin and clindamycin are the most commonly used topical antibiotics in acne treatment, both of which are available in different formulations. Antibiotics are not intended to be a monotherapy for acne. For instance, topical antibiotics should only be used in combination with benzoyl peroxide(BPO) to prevent the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 

BPO is an organic peroxide derived from a by-product of coal tar, which has become the most widely used topical acne medication in dermatology. BPO treatment alone improves inflammatory acne, and its mechanisms of action include antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and keratolytic effects and wound-healing activity. Fixed-dose combination gels of topical antibiotics with BPO are also available, as well as a combined gel formulation of clindamycin with tretinoin aids in treating acne.

Other topical agents including salicylic acid is a topical medication present in many over-the-counter products, which has comedolytic effects,however,it may be less effective than retinoids. Another topical agent, azelaic acid, has antibacterial, comedolytic and anti-inflammatory properties and is considered as a potential first-line monotherapy for female adult patients with acne, and a good choice for maintenancetherapy owing to its good tolerability and safety
