Scientific Rx: I'm going to assume that topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, a salicylic acid wash and topical retinoic acid have all failed. Ignore all "pop" advice. Your physician needs to add a prescription-strength Rx. You're female so the oral contraceptive pill or spironolaction are options. An antibiotic may be all that's required.

Depends: A true tendinitis infers that there is inflammation going on. This will usually cause redness, lots of pain with use of that tendon.
