Almost month 8 on Loryna and still getting acne...help?

Hi everyone, I really need your help!

I went on the Yaz generic version, Loryna, almost 8 months ago (I'm on the last week of my 7th pack) for my acne and to regulate my period. While my period is regular now, I'm still experiencing consistent itchy breakouts, many cystic and some whiteheads. It seems like every day I'm getting a new one! I'm really conflicted because when I told my gyno about this a few months ago, she said "stay on it for a year". I feel like if it's really not working, it'll just keep damaging my skin and leaving behind scars. I'm also scared that I'll break out even more if I go off of it, but honestly I've been breaking out in such weird places I haven't before (pretty much every area of my face at some point) that I'm thinking it might actually help to go off of it.

So what do you guys think? Should I stay on Loryna for at least 5 more months or quit it now? Or should I try to get on another brand of birth control?

Also, I've attached some pictures so you guys can see how my skin looks right now. Thanks in advance for any tips you give!17522005_1327433637332783_1459812679_o.jpg17521902_1327433603999453_1967986046_o.jpg

P.S. I'm starting to think it might be demodex mites instead, but I'm not quite sure! It almost looks rash-like and itches pretty consistently. There's also been times where I broke out in rashes on my eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, etc. Not sure what I should do!
