In brief: Yes

Why not do something for your acne that actually works? Topical benzoyl peroxide's the only over-the-counter that will touch it.
A physician can add topical Clindamycin or a retinoic acid derivative. If this isn't successful, a systemic antibiotic or something stronger from a dermatologist. This is the 21st century -- all acne's manageable.
