You MUST manage it: It sounds like your acne has been undertreated for 7 years. You're an adult now, and if you walk into a job interview with obvious acne, they'll see it as lack of basic self-care. "Sensitive" or not, treatment's an unpleasant necessity. It'll remit eventually (mine did at age 50) and until then you must manage it as an adult. Resume your benzoyl peroxide and get with your physician.
