Unlikely. There are very few reports in the peer-reviewed medical literature suggesting that supplements are helpful in acne.

In brief: Wait a minute

If it did not respond to benzoyl peroxide, a topical retinoic acid derivative, topical clindamycin, an oral antibiltic (erythromycin or tetracycline) and even Accutane from a dermatologist, then it is not acne.
Could it be pityrosproum / seborrhea?
