maybe you could try another doctor cos this current one apparently did not give you option (medicne) base on your needs.
rather he ight just gave you something without address your skin is dry as well.
it could be oily skin that cos acne.
but dry skin that are too dry are prone to infections as well due to small cracks etc.
so i suggest you could forgo your cream now altogether.
it may be too harsh.
even it's not, but over time strong chemical do deteriorate your skin over time.
dont risk it.
Try something natural like apple cider vinegar.
Research on that.
maybe you want try aloe vera to smooth and heal your skin.
find some water base moisturiser as well.
pm me if you need
dont be discourage.
slowly we may get there (:

At night I use the OXY full strength salicylic acid pads to clean my skin.
Then I apply 10% benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, salicylic acid and some nights a moisturizer that I would use on my face.
I just got this moisturizer from Walgreens that was only $6. It's just a walgreens brand that's called Alpha Hydroxy (then in smaller print it says it's for your face and contains 8% AHA)
The AHA is for exfoliation and helps shed the dead skin on your back faster instead of it accumulating and clogging your pores.
So far the routine has GREATLY helped. The other day I almost cried because it is healing so beautifully.

This stuff is STRONG, so use caution!!!
Anyway, fill a bathtub up with warm water like you normally do, and then add several drops of tea tree oil to it. If it's NOT diluted then only use a few drops (like 10)... if the bottle is watered down (AND YOU KNOW THIS) then use a little more.
It's slow to work but is considered a treatment for your acne EVERYWHERE, not just your back.
Do NOT accidentally get some water into your mouth in the bath since tea tree oil is toxic if ingested. It should be fairly safe to use, but please put some non-pore clogging body moisturizer on afterwards, such as "Curel" found at most drugstores and markets.
That's just a suggestion of course, I have yet to try it myself...
