Purging - how long?!

I have been following Dr Dubrow's regimen (salicylic, glycolic, ice pack, bp) for 5 weeks and am at a crossroads!

I had a major breakout initially but was reassured that this was just purging and would soon clear up. However after 5 weeks I just seem to be getting more and more spots (fewer cysts than before, but more whiteheads even in new places).

Everyone says glycolic can cause breakouts to begin with, but how long should this last? Should I persevere or stop before I get even more scars??

Please help, your advice is appreciated :confused:
