OK, I am year two with having clear skin. I will add pics later but right now I have benzaclin on my face so it has a white film and you can't really see my skin. When I wash my face again and apply tea tree oil toner I will take new pics and edit my post to add the photos. Anyway, I hope someone will be inspired by my regimen because I seriously had major cystic acne and now I have none. The best advice I can give is keep treating your face even after you stop breaking out. I know the acne will return anytime I stop my regimen.
Things that have helped me: Amoxicillin, Cephalexin, Tretinoin, Topical Clindamycin, Benzaclin aka Clindamycin+Benzoyl Peroxide.
I use a soap on my face that contains chlorhexidine gluconate (hibiclens or generic walgreens antiseptic skin cleanser) (highly antibacterial) and another soap that conatins 0.46% Triclosan (another antibacterial agent).
