Hi ‘Awkward’, thank you for the question and my apologies for the long delay with my answer.
Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the skin and advise you on the best treatment options. For severe acne a good topical regime should be followed (consisting of oil free products including one’s makeup and sun protection) in combination with one of the following:
Medically prescribed antibiotics, Androcur or Roaccutane
Omnilux: photodynamic therapy using LED lights
