Hi, the topical creams from the dermatologist usually take at least 3 months to really work. I would suggest going back to what your dermatologist prescribed, and maybe a benzoyl peroxide face wash (2.5 %) on top of that to help. I personally would avoid ACV; I used it a lot in the past but it makes the skin really really dry (which leads to more acne). What you likely need is a really strong moisturizer (a heavy one before bed, and a lighter one during the day). I've also suffered from acne my whole life, and the best things that work for me always come from the dermatologist. When I stopped using the dermatologist prescriptions (because of moving, insurance issues, or money issues) the acne always came back. But it's long process--definitely give the dermatologist meds another try and after 3 months if it doesn't improve, then try another dermatologist.
