Manage it anyway: There's no telling when acne will go away on its own. I was able to stop using topical benzoyl peroxide etc. when I was 50. Try this. Resolve that you're going to tough this out. See if you can tolerate 2.5% benzoyl peroxide and ask your physician about adding topical clindamycin or systemic tetracycline. It won't be pleasant but I bet you can bear it. Best wishes.
