Get treated: If benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid, and salicylic acid have failed, you're not going to be able to manage your acne without your physician's help. Keep using one of these make your appointment. The oral contraceptive pill might clear you in a week. Antibiotics and spironolactone are other possibilities. Good luck.
