Aspirin mask is the most direct way to treat these as aspirin is BHA.

I use BHA (Butylated hydroxyanisole/Butylated Hydroxy Acid) toner to get to the core of a break out. You can make your own aspirin toner with just some uncoated aspirin and dissolve them in purified water.

Using BHA won't clear them up over nigh but over time and and prevent them from forming in the first place.

Also surfer mask really helps to speed up break outs as well and won't burn your skin tike too past does. I know that you out of the country so going to a skin specialist might be scary but try to talk a doctor with someone else to help bright the language barrier.

If they recommend a product also find out what the active ingredients in it are and make note of those when you come back if they work so you can look for similar products back home.
