Taking antibiotics for acne. Need a permanent cure

Hi ive been suffering with acne for 7 years of my life. Gone through almost every antiobiotic such as roaccutance, tetracycline all worked while on the med, soon as i get off flare up. Recently went back to the dermatologist and she prescribed me Clarithomycin, again another antibiotic. My skin is very oily, is this going to work? i dont know how much longer i can take the acne as im 22 now and ive suffered enough :( self esteem is always low i feel like crying sometimes.
