Stubborn red marks + Pics

Recommended Posts

I'm 19 and currently in the last stage of puberty, I guess. I've been suffering from acne since 2015. 
Initially it was really bad, and I was given adapalene and clindamycin by the dermatologist, which had really helped. I've also been on BP, and doxycycline for a while.

I'm currently going through one of the worst skin phases. I'm starting my 3rd month on 4% BP, and 100 mg doxycycline.

I mostly have papules and stubborn red hyperpigmentation marks. In fact, the marks are more of a problem than the acne itself. Could BP be aggravating my marks? 

Also, I have sensitive skin. I use aloe vera gel and Neutrogena oil free moisture at nights, along with the BP.

I'm really depressed about the state of my skin. Any pointers?
