Use prescription drugs. Certain medications can be prescribed by your dermatologist to help with particularly bad cases of acne, but should be used with caution. As with all medications, there may be unwanted side-effects in a small portion of the population.

Accutane (isotretinoin) takes about 5 hours to enter the bloodstream and lasts about 24 hours. It is a strong stimulant to skin growth that can cause significant side effects. In the United States, doctors will require all women of reproductive age to use not just one, but two forms of birth control to prevent genetic damage to unborn babies. It is usually prescribed for people who have severe nodular acne that doesn’t respond to other treatments. A complete dosage taken in 15 to 20 weeks has been shown to completely clear acne, with no future remissions.

Lavender oil is another favorite of mine, not only because it can help prevent and keeps acne at bay, but it smells amazing, and provides relaxation qualities — something much needed in today’s world. Lavender helps regenerate skin cells, minimize sun spots and even reduce scarring caused by acne. Additionally, it can help reduce swelling and inflammation that may be caused by acne due to the polysaccharides it contains. (20)
For a long time nobody knew why teenagers get acne. But many
that it would come from hormonal changes as teenagers grow up. But why then are there some ethnic regions in the world where teenagers do not get acne? In this blog I will present the background that shows that wheat, sugar and dairy products are the culprits. They are not eaten in those regions of our planet where acne does not exist.
Oral antibiotic use can lead to vaginal candidiasis; doxycycline can be associated with photosensitivity; and minocycline has been linked to pigment deposition of the skin, mucous membranes, and teeth. 
The precipitating event came in the form of 40,000-year-old Neanderthal bones found in a Croatian cave. So well-preserved were the bones that they yielded enough DNA for sequencing, and it became Reich’s job in 2007 to analyze the DNA for signs that Neanderthals interbred with humans—a idea he was “deeply suspicious” of at the time.
6. Go outside and breathe fresh air. Fresh air has shown to help acne clear, if you sit in the house you won’t clear your acne much, but just cause more. You could even just sit outside on your phone for a few hours.

Topical antimicrobials (Topical antibiotics) help kill the bacteria on skin that can infect plugged hair follicles. Should always be combined with Benzoyl Peroxide in order to prevent the development of bacterial resistances.
Almost all patients with this severe form of acne will require some form of systemic (oral) medication to control this condition. The goal of therapy is to minimize scarring. The choice of drug with which to begin treatment depends on the experience and preferences of the physician and patient. It is often warranted to try oral antibiotics initially (doxycycline [Doryx, Oracea, Monodox], sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim [Bactrim, Sulfatrim], minocycline [Minocin]) for a limited period of time supplemented by a topical retinoid drug (Retin A, Differin, Tazerotene). Antibiotics probably owe much of their effectiveness to their anti-inflammatory characteristics rather than their antibacterial attributes.

The only thing that came close to working was a topic steroid called Fluocinonide but because it was a steroid I had to stop using it. Alot of the over the counter stuff breaks me out mainly because my skin is allergic to the Benzoide Peroxide or salicylic acids that are in them. Oh and I should mention I am a woman of color.
