I'm 15 and I have had acne for the past two years. It's not to where it is whiteheads... it's under my skin all over my forehead and I have tried sooo many different products!
This is likely cystic acne - very frustrating! My derm put me on a regime that included the prescription products Benzene Foam, Aczone, and Differin. This has done WONDERS for my skin. Most over-the-counter treatments won't do much to heal this kind of acne, unfortunately. If you can't find a dermatologist that will treat it, see if your family doctor will prescribe you a round of antibiotics, like clindamycin, that might help clear it up. Another option is birth control, but I can see how some girls your age might be opposed to that treatment. Whatever you do, DO NOT pick at the pimples! I promise it only makes it worse
