In brief: Get a real Rx

You deserve 21st centjry treatment.
Being 16 years old is hard enough. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck.
