Desperate with my cystic skin condition

Hello everyone, 

not sure if I came to the right section but I hope I will get some advice/help in here. I've been dealing with acne problems since I was 16 ( currently at 20) and it was more like a week or 2 clear, then skin infected with pimples ( most of them on my forehead).But for a couple of months now the zits have becoming so large and painful at the point that I'm so confused/self cautious regarding this problem.I've recently been to a dermatoligist, and he prescribed me a gel named " Epiduo) which contains 0.1% Adapaline and 2.5% Benzoylperoxid.After a week of using it the zits almost entirely dissapeared.Though I have to mention that particular week I've been of from any animal food or oils.I know that food plays a major role regarding to my acne but even though I've been trying to stay away from dairy/ oils I still can't get rid of them zits.I have to mention that I am a very muscular guy ( natural ofc) but I believe that this is part of the reason my hormones are all over the place.
Sorry for the long post and I hope  that somebody will reach out
