I tried melacare, retin a 0.05% occasionally a lactic acid  chemical peel 40% on the spot. Please help me get my skin back to normall.

all acne is hormonal to some degree.  Are you giving each regimen at least 3 months before switching.  It takes about that long for your skin to grow new layer so......

Are these pimples correlating to your menstrual cycle?  If topicals alone are not cutting it, you may want to talk to your derm about BC or spiro.
Also, its also worth looking into improving diet and lifestyle (cutting dairy and gluten - more whole foods)
