Hi. Greetings. It is common to have flares of acne in early and late teens and may also continue for some in their twenties... Don't worry. You can visit a dermatologist near you and he can prescribe to you the retinoid based creams or gels you may need for few weeks. You may also need a course or oral or topical antibiotics since you are having pustular lesions also. Use a salicylic acid based face wash. Hope this helps.
