Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

How long have you been using the medication? If it has been over 12 weeks, keep taking it but make an appointment with a dermatologist.

What you have may be due to an allergy or other issue that is not traditional acne and may need a different kind of treatment.You may need to be tested for allergies.

Facials are wonderful for cleansing, moisturizing and relaxation but will not do anything for acne if the root cause isn't found.

It's also a good idea to ask your dermatologist to evaluate your skin to see if there is an overgrowth of yeast on your skin and then change your treatment plan if that's the case.
