Try Witch Hazel, it worked for me personally. You can find it in Superdrugs and i think boots should sell it too.

I'd suggest u go see ur GP if u can (take caution) and they can prescribe you antibiotics - if it's severe acne then u could ask them to consider giving u roaccutane

If you would rather not go to your GP at this time (or can't) boots have an online acne clinic where they can ask a few simple questions and prescribe the medication. It costs more but its not extortionate.

Yes but if you are a girl then it will probably work. One of the factors that causes acne is a high concentration of androgens (aka male hormones) that cause increased sebum production. The combined pill reduces the concentration of androgens and therefore acne.

This is why acne is generally more common in males than females as they have a higher androgen concentration.

Be extra careful with the advice you got. Acne can be due to a lot of things, mostly hormones which contraception pills can help, but can be caused by a lot of things. Antibiotics can increase your resistance. Putting some cream can make your skin more oily and easier to get more acne. Alcohol-based stuff can dry your skin and make it sensitive. Some acne med can help it disappear in a few days, but it will come back more violently.
Research well before applying anything onto your face. I won't give advice because I'm not your GP, and I also went through that phase of desperately trying all I can to get rid of acne only to make it worse.
