Manage long-term: You're an adult and you need to manage your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks (an alternative is retinoic acid), get with your personal physician for help. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle related disease that isn't pleasant to manage, but can be kept at bay until it remits on its own. I was able to stop using meds around age 50.
