This type of persistent/ recurrent acne may be due to deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals. You must have done some internal skin antibiotic course. If not, you can take Doxy 100 mg twice daily for 10 days (check that you are not allergic to doxycyclin). Along with this start following vitamin therapy:

Vitamins: Vitamin niacin 100 mg, three times a day, and Vitamin A - 50,000 IU, three times a day.
Vitamin E - 400 mg once a day. This vitamin therapy should be continued for a month.

Mineral: Zinc-50 mg three times a day. Continue for one month and then reduce to 25 mg three times.
Garlic is called a wonder herb for acne. Rubbed raw garlic on acne several times a day (after sensitivity test that you are not allergic to garlic). Pimples disappear without scars.
