In brief: Get serious

If topical benzoyl peroxide or a retinoic acid derivative (the latter's often best of blackheads are abundant) haven't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
Acne's a serious liability especially in the working world. The one home 'pop' remedy that may help is tea tree oil -- if you're a man, it may cause you to grow breasts. Your physician's your best friend.
