In brief: I say yes

when it has scarred you like this, it is severe and I am sorry you did not receive appropriate treatment earlier

In brief: SUPER OILY SKIN

FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU STOP EATING NUTS, CHOCOLATE, AND DAIRY PRODUCTS, YOUR ACNE WILL GET BETTER IN A MATTER OF WEEKS.
IF YOUR ACNE IS STUBBORN, THEN A COURSE OF ISOTRETINOIN WOULD BE ADVISABLE
