Tryin to figure out the next step

Recommended Posts

Hi, I went through my entire puberty with only the occasional period pimple, then I turned 22 and developed what I assumed to be adult onset acne. At any given time I had numerous small blackheads, 8-10 closed comedones or white heads, and 9-15 papules or pustules or cysts. I'm really not sure what to call the last ones as they are hard, reddenned, painful and at times pus-filled that at times would ooze from just opening my mouth. I tried duac, differin gel 0.1% and 0.3%, salicylic acid creams/toner/facewash, benzoyl peroxide cream/facewash. Also I've tried several oral antibiotics with negative results. If someone could please help I'm open to any suggestions! Any help would be appreciated seeing as though i spend most of my time in my house in shame crying.
