All acne is caused by clogged pores, but non-inflammatory acne doesnt has bacteria in it and is not situated deeper within the pores either. When oil, bacteria, and other foreign substances get caught deeper within your pores, your body’s natural defense is to produce pus. In short, pus filled acne indicates the presence of bacteria.
For inflammatory acne treatment, you have the following options:

  1. Over-the-counter drugs: use skincare products that have Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
  2. Appropriate skincare regime: Wash your face in the morning and night, wear oil-free moisturizer once you are done washing your face, and wear sunscreen as the final step of your skincare routine. And please don't scratch or pop them.
  3. If you don't find changes even after several months of following these steps, then reach out to an expert: they will have topical retinoids, isotretinoin, oral antibiotics, topical antibiotics, and hormonal medications, or even advanced clinical treatments.

Please do not use any home remedial solution: because what we have observed so far is, that people apply seemingly healthy ingredients to their skin, without knowing how to extract the right chemicals from them, or what their chemical composition actually is, or how same could react with their skin post-application.
Just because your skin feels cool/smooth after applying them, doesn't mean that they worked.
