Sorry to hear about your concerns. It can be very difficult to manage oily skin, as it can be on display to all the world at all times. The best suggestion for someone such as yourself who has already attempted some over the counter medications without much success is to speak with a physician. He or she may be able to help you immediately with some suggestions. One of the most common medications, for some people that need extra help, that is prescribed to help with oily and aging skin is a variant of retinoids that can be titrated to the appropriate dose that you may need. Depending on other problems that you may have, antibiotic medications and other creams and moisturizers may be necessary to help your skin achieve optimal health and cosmetics. Obviously, all of this will depend on a physical examination and complete medical history, as there are many reasons that you may need different treatment to achieve excellent results. Working closely with a physician, specifically a dermatologist, will allow you to know if it is safe for you to begin a new medication, and if that is the right thing for you. Please speak with your doctor about your concerns.
