I have had acne on my face 6 months -

Resolved Question:

Hi,I have had acne on my face for approximately 6 months - my doctor has prescribed an acne cream, which is making it less inflamed but it is still really bad. It is mainly on my cheek and chin.I had a baby 8 months ago by c-section and also changed my skincare 3 days before I broke out the first time which was terribly inflamed. I'm not sure if either of these has caused it? My skin has always been very sensitive to products.I need help to get rid of it, it is literally affecting my life as I don't want to leave the house. I am 33.
