Hi sam,
Pimples are a chronic disease and really take time to clear. complete cure within 30 days is quite difficult as u can imagine that the usual duration of treatment for acne is 3 months-6 months according to severity.
the best drug for acne is Isotretinoin along with other topical agents can give a satisfactory results.. Plsease follow this regimen ..
1. Tab Isotretinoin 20 mg /day
2. Tab. Azithromycin 250 mg/day
3. Clindamycin gel in morning
4. Benzoyl peroxide in night
5. Last but not least - a chemical peel for active pimple and dark spots
hope this will help u

dear samasusmi, welcome to hcm.
first of all, worrying so much about your pimples definitely increases ur stress hormones and inturn, the no and frequency of pimples do increase. so, stop worrying. it is nearly totally treatable.
Use a good oil-free face wash and take plenty of water and fresh fruit juices. keep ur face covered and do not expose to direct sunlight in this summer.
Do not try to pinch the lesions of rub them/press them.
u can continue the treatment suggested by dermatologists. all that u need is a review with them for addition of a antibiotic if the lesions are more severe with pus.
Do not apply oil based formulations for ur face, neck, shoulders.
do not oil ur hair every day. and once u oil ur hairs, please take a headbath and get rid of the oiliness within 3-4hrs maximum.
trim ur nails avoid contact with face and fingers.
hope these help u for time being.
please do not target for a quick relief of the pimples anytime. they usually vanish with time.
thank you:-)

I understand the urgency that you want to get rid of your pimples and dark spots, but usually the treatment at least lasts 3 -6months.
As you are in your teenage years your body is going through lot of hormonal changes which can be a big contributory factor to the pimples.
I understand that you have been to dermatologists and saloons, but, please instill your faith in ONE dermatologist and follow the treatment as prescribed and be patient - thats the key.
As for know you can start on :
Salicylic acid face wash (saslic Ds)
in the morning apply clindamycin gel such as cleargel all over your face

For your marks you can either apply topical retenoids (under dermatologist supervision) or you can opt for procedures such as chemical peeling.
Please meet a dermatologist and cosmetologist
In addition do not break or meddle with the pimples as can lead to dark spots.Be careful about the saloon treatments - dont let them break or squezze your pimples and dont opt for facial massage as can make the face oily.

Take Care
