It sounds as if you have been treated appropriate to date. There is probably a hormonal component to your recalcitrant acne. This is difficult to treat but would recommend that you follow up with your dermatologist to discuss the alternatives in this scenario. You may be a candidate also for Accutane and only your dermatologist can make that determination.
