Used nair hair removal spray on back, got folliculitis, using proactive. Sound enough medication?

I used nair hair removal spray on my back in early August. A few days later, my back broke out in what I thought was folliculitis but it looks to be really bad acne . Dermatologist gave me some creams and right now I m Using ProActive. Seems to help but the acne is still there It s been over 4 months! Is there a stronger cream or medication I can use? Please help! Thank You!

Hello.Most of the OTC hair removal products cause infection of hair follicles,which sometimes get severe with bacteria.You might need oral antibiotics, to control infection.
