In brief: Scientific Rx

If you have the luxury of several over-the-counter acne medications, then you can experiment with using the retinoic-acid based medication where you have the blackheads, and the salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide where you have the whiteheads.
More seriously, if you're not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
