How can I stop cystic acne?

Recommended Posts

For the past 4 years, (freshman to senior year) I have been struggling with acne on my face. This acne is not just 3 to 4 pimples at a time. Instead, there are large pimples, both whiteheads and pussy red ones. I have been living in constant fear of what people think of me. I haven't had any confidence in my appearance in forever. 

I have tried many many products, including Clean & Clear, Proactiv: X Out, etc. I have also been prescribed topical cream along with a dosage of pills but nothing has worked. 

I clean my face twice a day, use moisturizer & benzoyl peroxide. I also use a Vitamin C Serum to get rid of the redness of the pimples and scarring. 

Throughout the day, my face becomes very itchy and the pimples hurt and bother my skin extremely

I just need some guidance, can anyone tell me what to do?

To specify: The locations I get the most acne are under & on the side of my mouth, jawline and on my cheeks. 
I have many scars on my cheeks from over the years.
