Tons Of Red Spots All Over My Cheeks

Hey so, I've had acne since I was about 12, I've used NEARLY every cleanser/toner/moisturizer/spot treatment but nothing has worked, it wasn't that bad a few years ago I mainly just had it on my forehead, but then my forehead cleared up but they started going on my cheeks, so when to my doctor and he prescribed me Minocycline I tried that for 2 months but it didn't work so I went back and he gave me Bactrim DS, I'm currently on it now and about in my 9th week.

It's stopped the production of pimples but the thing is, I still have all these red marks all over my cheeks, they're getting really bad and I have absolutely no confidence at all.

I'm currently undergoing some chemical peels, I've only had 2 so far, I don't see any difference at all, I'm going for my third one next week but I'm not sure if I want to pay for another ($160) just for it to not work.

So what I'm asking is, does anyone have any good spot treatments that do actually work and fast?

Thanks.

I have similar issues, i've ordered a bunch of stuff and received it today so pm me in 2 or 3 weeks and ill let you know what worked.

I ordered collagen, rosehip seed oil, vit c cleanser, vit c tablets, vit e tablets, glycolic toner, and i already have 25% glycolic peels and 25&50% lactic peels. Only just started all this stuff.

I'll give the actual links to the products if you want

Btw I ordered the stuff from iherb, there was a coupon code i had that gives $5 off.

edit the code was xon237 found it on muac
