In brief: Medication

Long term care for wide spread acne includes salicylic acid wash, prescription topicals, and a physician following your situation.
Presently it sounds out of control and you may benefit from laser skin care as well as oral medication. Consider your acne a medical condition which it is and take it seriously. Although it is miserable to have it, acne is treatable.
