Many antibiotics for acne no longer work due to antibiotic resistance. Pimples in 20 plus females takes longer to respond. Kindly consult a dermatologist and take treatment for upto 3 months with regular follow up . Another option for reistant pimples is oral Isotretinoin capsules. Your dermatologist will evaluate you and prescribe it , if needed. But you and your husband need to sign a consent form regarding family planning. The capsule may be advised for 3 months. So, 3 months plus another 6 months, around 9 months, you should not get pregnant. You must use 2 different family planning methods for that. Kindly discuss with your husband first and meet the dermatologist as a couple and discuss.
