I have come back after a long time and I wanted to share my recovery with you. You only have to take the initiative to get make the necessary changes in your lifestyle, whether you want to do it that's up to you.
Basically my skin has been completely spot free since a year now. Acne.org has helped me much. I have seen so many doctors unwilling to address the source of the problem and only treating symptoms. I am not sure whether they lack medical education or they are playing dumb to help the pharmaceutical industry become more wealthy and themselves at the same time. I am leaning towards the latter.
I haven't been taking pills (never have), I have stopped pretty much all acne treatments although I still keep a tube of clindoxyl gel and double action moisturizing salicylic acid just in case.
What causes acne : dairy (butter, buttermilk, milk, cheese), nuts, and sugar.
Dairy causes cystic acne
Nuts (omega 6) causes inflammation
Sugar causes white heads, liver unable to process the sugar
Explanation here (For the usual non believers who demand scientific evidence)

I abbreviate it to DNS, everytime I go to a restaurant and I need to remember what I am not supposed to touch DNS easy to remember that way. (In your particular case you might also be reactive to soy, eggs, wheat but I suggest start by throwing out the first three I mentioned, and I mean literally throw them out or give the to the homeless. I know it's difficult I've been there before but your health is at risk and med bills and medication will cost you.)
Foods that counter acne:
Salt (salt decreases sugar levels in blood)
Apple cider vinegar (restores balance in your body, and detoxifies)
Green tea (again lowers blood sugar)
Fruits and vegetables
Tofu (omega 3) also replaces the calcium you need
MSM sulphur in certain vegetables, google MSM sulphur in food (don't take the pills the pharma industry dumps unknown chemicals in drugs, but you can trust vegetables at 110%.)
Safe places to eat: Non-westernized Asian restaurants, and Vegan restaurants
There you go I provided you with all the information, I didn't have to come back and didn't want to come back to acne.org (because of people who are always negative and desbeliever despite you trying to help them) but I did because I know there are people who really needed it.
