Get a real Rx: You deserve something stronger if you're at this point. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck.
