Acne which is comedonal like yours may need an oral antibiotic for the best results

Sometimes topicals like Retin-A and Differin gel, which are keratolytic agents, are not enough to cure this type of comedonal acne.  I would suggest an oral antibiotic like Doxycycline.  I would also recommend you getting some traditional acne extractions from a board certified dermatologist to hasten the process.  Let me know how it all works out.
