Hi, everyones skin reacts different and if its not working then stop. A very good acne line is Proactive. You might give them a try and they are over the counter creams and washes.

First of all your using way too many products at once and it's really irritating  your skin. Proactive does not work at all I've tried it I've been dealing with acne half my life. I am not a doctor so as far as pills I can't say but it is true they all stop working even accutane. You need to follow a simple regimen for your skin.

Morning - Johnson and Johnson purpose was (it's very gentle)
Night - st Ives green tea scrub only problem areas it's very drying
And moisturizing is very important but cetaphil might not be enough moisture since your skin is very irritated la Roche posay has great moisturizers they can be found at cvs walgreens amazon and online.

Get the Johnson and Johnson purpose wash and just use that for a few days till your skin calms down. Add other products in slowly for the pimple itself try erythromycin 2% gel you need a prescription and only put a little on each pimple. Too much will make it worse it's all about finding a balance with your skin. Try reading reviews about different lines but trust me keep it simple.
