In brief: See Derm

Sounds like you have attempted simple treatment, suggest you see dermatologist who might consider different treatments from hormonal to antibiotic (such as accutane, or others).
Skin cleansing and care program should be established, with guidance to avoid some problem make up/skin care products and preservatives. Acidifying skin may be part of their program to help you.

In brief: Time for a retinoid

Retina or differin (adapalene) are good choices for acne.
Either can be used with clinda or benzoyl peroxide. Don't over dry your skin with harsh cleansers, which could worsen acne. Use a moisturizer if needed.
