Other prescriptions: See your doctor. There are other prescriptions available for acne besides antibiotics. Sometime we use immune modulators or other classes of creams and pills to help. Soft primary care doctors are comfortable with this. If yours is not then see a dermatologist.

Hormones-PDT-Peels: Acne responds to different treatments in different people. I adult women, hormone imbalances can be a source for challenging acne. Normalizing hormones can be very effective. In addition, chemical peels with salicylic acid, glycolic acid or other mild agents can really help. Also, photodynamic therapy can make dramatic improvements. I would see a dermatologist.
