Give it time: I usually advise patients to give "the pill" at least 3 cycles to determine if they will experience clearing of acne. Continue to use topical acne solutions AND take some before and after pictures of your skin to convince yourself that things are better or worse. If you do not experience at least some resolution of acne symptoms discuss with your doctor.
