In brief: Acne

There are many steps and treatments available to treat acne.
If topicals aren't working then orals need to be added. Sometimes it's hormonal and there are treatments available for that. See your dermatologist and if you are not clearing then find another dermatologist.

In brief: No cure for acne

Unfortunately there is no permanent cure for acne.
There are many treatments that can help control or reduce acne breakouts but they will usually recur especially if you stop the treatments. You may go thru periods in your life when acne is worse such as puberty, pregnancy, and after menopause due to hormonal fluctuations. Also stress and environmental factors play a role.
