There is no one best treatment...
I would recommend you start seeing a local dermatologist to discuss options... the key to controlling acne is consistent use of medicines because they take several weeks to start working and occasionally need to be adjusted to maintain control until you "outgrow" your acne.
"retinoid" type creams, oral or cream/gel antibiotics and anti-inflammatory benzoyl peroxide acne washes/creams are often helpful AND best used in combination with eachother
hope this helps
