Getting rid of acne and oily skin
Your doctor should put you in a daily Medical Grade skincare regime. This will consist of a proper Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer (yes, even a moisturizer is needed for oily skin). Prescription creams or gels may be needed as well. This is generally a great starting point. I would recommend some Acid Peels as well to speed up the process.
When treated correctly acne can be targeted fairly quickly but please remember overnight changes will not happen.

Acne is a Medical Condition
The best thing for you to do is to see a Board Certified Dermatologist. When you see a Dermatologist they will assess your skin and can prescribe medication as necessary for your acne.
There are a variety of different medications that are both oral and topical that can help improve your acne. You may also need to have manual extractions and or possibly laser/light treatments for your acne.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see what the best option for your acne is.
