Are you on birth control pills? If so what are you on?

 

Your best option is to get on a birth control pill that has a hormonal balance that helps acne (unlike the Mirena). Your best options are Yaz, Yasmin, BeYaz, Belara, Dianette, and as a last resort Ortho Cyclen. If you are on ANY other brand of birth control get off it.

 

Your second best option is to take some OTC supplements and change your diet to fix your hormone levels.The acne bootcamp page has a very detailed plan that tells you what supplements to take, what diet changes to make, and what cosmetics to use until your skin is clear.

Use the sulfur 10% butter or the black drawing salve. Put on a thick layer every night.

Please define what a "horrible reaction" is to BP.

 

Antibiotics are not meant to be taken for 2.5 years. You're probably immune to them by now. Going off them isn't going to change anything.

3.5 months isn't long enough. Have patience.

 

Take a look at the acne bootcamp guide for more ways to stop your acne from all the different angles. It's not exactly what I recommend but it's so similar that I'm not going to bother typing it all out on here anymore.

A lot of makeup artists recommend the beautyblender sponges. It's a lot for a makeup sponge but it does work better than the cheapy ones at the drugstore. I used to apply my makeup with professional cosmetic brushes but the brushes don't work very well when you have acne, or scars, or open pores.

 

You basically get the beautyblender damp and then use it to apply the makeup. It really blends and covers much better that way.
