depends on your age and your skin problem.

 

but for many years i had really bad acne and redness around my nose, mouth and chin.

it might not work for you but i ditched all medical creams, acne creams, stopped drinking milk and only use a  sensitive soap once a day only ( i use john&johnson's baby soap) and this greatly helped my problem.

in the past, basically i was over washing my face, sometimes upto 5 times a day. this was causing an over production of sebum, my pours would get blocked and i would have constant infections/spots. + shaving with a razor and shaving foam would cause alot of problems for me. ( i switched to an  Electric foil razor)

milk is well known to cause hormonal acne. google it.

Try an anti-fungal cream. Try clotrimazole cream first. If that does not work, rteply to me and I can provide more detailed information.

 

This doesn't sound like fungus, it sounds like regular whiteheads. I'd just try a gentle cleanser, 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel and a non-comedogenic moisturizer. Heck if the whiteheads have no redness even just salicylic acid pads and moisturizer could work. Have you used any kind of acne treatment before?
