Acne treatment is peeling my skin and drying it out but is prescribed by a dermatologist. Should I stop? (photo)

I have had clear skin my entire life until 2 years ago when i started IPL. I was in college and was able to do the treatment 1-2 times. As the doctor was aware of the distance, he would tell me to come sooner that required. But instead of lessening the hair, a lot of rough, thick hair grew and i began to shave a lot more than i should have. Also, i was only exposed to tropical weather until i moved for college. Recently, my acne got better but has worsen in the last 2 months.
