Just started gettting horible adult acne. please help!



Hi I have suddenly developed horrible acne along my jaw line. I am a 27 year old female who has always had a pimple or two around the time of my period but as of last summer I was basically acne free until I started breaking out horribly. It started about a month and a half ago right after I got a really bad sinus infection. I was put on penicillin by the doctor and from what I was told by my dermatologist the penicillin should have helped the acne but it didn’t. I have been continuously breaking out ever since in large painful acne that is forming deep in my skin and pretty much never forms a whitehead. My jaw line looks like a war zoon littered with old pimple marks and huge new ones that are never ending. At this point I don’t know what to as I have had all my hormone levels checked and from what the doctors say they are normal. They have ruled out PCOS. I am currently on an antibiotic for the acne but it is doing nothing. I have tried to change my daily routine in hopes of clearing it up I.e. exercising, trying to cut out most processed foods and dairy, taking vitamins daily, trying to sleep on my back to keep my face from touching my pillow. I have also always used a topical acne regimen of benzoic peroxide, a topical antibiotic and tretinoin. At this point I don’t know what to do. The only other things I can possibly attribute this to from what I have seen in researching is the fact that I was on adder all which I have stopped taking as of two weeks ago and maybe there is some kind of bacteria or fungus that is still running thru my body form the sinus infection. Is anyone has any advise I would be forever grateful as at this point it is so bad I barley leave the house unless I have to :((
