Should I use Lymecycline and Differin cream for one or two spots?

I had a bad breakout of spots on my cheek and a few on the other side of my face that started about 3 months ago. As they were painful and leaving marks and scars the nurse referred me to a dermatologist but I had to wait 2 months for this appointment! In the meantime I was given Zineryt which seemed to clear the worst of it after about 8 weeks, and I decided stop using it as spots weren't healing properly as it was quite drying. Since then I get a spot or 2 like I always used to before the bad breakout.

Despite this I still attended the dermatologist appointment as I had queries about the marks/scars and she prescribed me Lymecycline and Differin (and also didn't seem too interested in what I was saying about the fact it wasn't as bad as it was). I only get a few spots which I think are mostly hormonal so I'm not sure I need such a hard treatment anymore. I'm worried that it will just aggravate my skin and possibly trigger another breakout if I do use it. Any advice?
