Please Help, Don't Know What Conditions I Have/treatments To Use

So what I've been doing for the last 3 weeks.

-Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser, once morning, once night.

-Clean and Clear 3-in-1 exfoliating cleanser at night.

-I scrub my face with body soap

-Changing my pillowcase.

Reasons why it might still be there

-I've been using probably about 100, 110 degree water for long showers.

-Still manage to touch my face like a couple times every hour.

-My skin gets really oily, really quickly. It only takes about 30 minutes to get from dry to oily.

-Messy eater.

So far, no sign of any real progress, so I'm not sure if it's simply because those products don't work or they're targeting the wrong thing. I'd mostly like to know what type of skin problems I'm dealing with so I can research for solutions, but simply suggestions would be good as well. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

It looks like you have some residual redness, possibly hypertrophic and icepick scars, and enlarged pores with your acne. You may have seborhoeic dermatitis due to the location around the mouth.

I would discontinue scrubs, and it may be making your skin worse.

I think you should go to a dermatologist to rule check if you have seborrhoeic dermatitis.

You can either see a derm- or stop using all the products and just use water... just water. As strange as it may seem- you may be doing more harm than good.

Drink 3000-4000ML of water per day (water is important)
