In brief: See a dermatologist

Non of these is a serious acne therapy.
A skin specialist will evaluate you and direct you towards real acne therapy that will work. For adult females this often involves retinoid cream.........adapalene is now OTC. You may be put in touch with spironolactone and certain birth control pills.

In brief: Acne treatment

Acne that is not responsive to over the counter medications such as benzoyl peroxide may require prescription medication.
Follow up with your doctor for prescription acne medication such as antibiotic gel or retinoid cream
