skin acne at 32.. please help!!

I have a skin acne at 32 after several years of using a contraceptive pill.
I started to have acne at 14, and it calmed down at 20 but never really disappeared. I decided to take a pill which helped a lot, but made few breaks across years. I recently quit taking the pill and my acne has resurfaced. About two years ago I was prescribed Silica/Gunpowder/Sulphur 6c, and took it for couple months,it helped a lot however the remedy never completely removed the acne.
I am seriously stressed out about my skin.It's very oily, so as my hair.
I generally have a very good diet and I exercise.
I don't understand why this is still an issue for me, and it's quite embarrassing.
Few days ago I started taking Sulphur 200c. I will mention that when I took a previous remedy, I was in a very different mental and emotional state. I used to cry a lot, got irritated very easily and had a mild depression.
I had a very hard childhood, and I learned how to be tough and recently I opened up emotionally, and generally I a m a lot happier, but I worry a lot, which I don't know how to overcome.
Instant gratification is my vice. I have troubles with patience.
But I also try to learn how to change that.
I must mention that my acne is red pimples and puss filled spots on my face,neck and back. My skin itches a lot and I scratch it, but I worry I will be left with scars.
Please help!
I wonder: how often should I take Sulphur 200c for ( at the moment I take 1 sugar pill a day) and how fast will I start seeing the results?
Should I take any other complimentary remedy or change this one to more suitable one?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You should only EVER be taking one dose of any remedy and waiting a reasonable amount of time for the result to be assessed. Never take a remedy day after day, especially a high potency like 200c.

You should also not be taking repeated doses of the dry pillules. Homoeopathic medicines are meant to be dissolved in water, and the water is taken as your dose. Typically 1-2 pillules would be dissolved in 1/4 to a full cup of water, stirred throughly, and only 1 or 2 teaspoons taken into the mouth as one dose. If you are taking several doses close together, then that same glass of water can be used for those repeat doses.

Typically a homoeopath would assess the result of the remedy after 1-3 weeks, depending on the situation. There is no mechanical dosing in homoeopathy - doses are repeated only after the reaction to the remedy is carefully assessed.

Thank you for such quick reply. I really appreciate it.
Story with the Sulphur started with being advised by homeopath, as I mentioned to him that Sulphur 30c didnt help me. I took it for about 3 weeks earlier.
I asked if higher potency might be an option. Homeopath said that I could take 200c, and asked me what form would I prefer, so I agreed to sugar pills.
I have never before been advised on homeopathic remedy diluted in water.
Also I don't really understand the last paragraph. Could you explain better please?
( apologies, English isn't my first language ).
Again, thank you for prompt response. :_)))

10. ACNE
suffered since around 14 years old. Hasn't really taken any medications when a teenager, as mother advised that nature has to take its course.I must mention that the only affected area was my face. When i was a bit older 20/21, I still has acne issue so I went to a GP and he advised I get contraceptive pill, which I did take then for severeal years, changing the pill in the meantime ( Cilest, Dianette only for 4 months, and Yasmin.
My acne had its moments. Sometimes pill had worked and after couple years it's started to fail. I had fee breaks in those years of taking pill, which I stopped taking in mid Dec 11.
My breaks were usually from couple months to 6 months.
I have also been prescribed topical treatment and it had worked however it dried my skin without any mercy, so I decided to put it away.
I decided to visit a homeopath about two years ago. He prescribed Silica/Gunpowder/Sulphur 6c. I have been taking the remedy for 4 weeks and saw very little improvement. So decided to put that away.
I still was carrying on with the pill while on both the topical treatment as well as the homeopathic remedy.
I only stopped taking the pill in about mid Decemeber. My acne spread to chest and back and remained there for the past year. In January 2012 I tried to help myself taking Sulphur 30c, but it hasnt helped that much.
So I went to seek advice and was told I could try Sulphur 200c. Also was advised on taking Carbo Veg/Silica as cleanser, but was told not to take both remedies at once.
So I have been taking Sulphur 200c for 4 days.
My skin itches terribly in past few days and I think I should stop taking it if I react like this.
My skin is generally very oily and wearing make up is quite tricky because after just couple hours I feel I have greasy and dirty skin.
I use mineral make up which is gentler for the skin. I try not to use too many skincare products, and don't get regular treatments ( facials ).
I have been very stressed about my acne and I don't like looking in the mirror that much anymore, although considering myself quite attractive.

I have very oily hair. Hairdresser told me its generous production of sebum.
My hair is usually quite oily the next day and by the evening I really should wash it again if I want it healthy looking.
I noticed this change around when I was 24. I started to wash my hair almost everyday.
I have to admit that I dry my hair with a hair dryer, simply as they are flat and they look much less volumised, if I just leave it to dry naturally.
Also its worth mentioning that at my job it is essential to wear make up and styled hair.
I barely use any styling products, only hair spray at occasions.
I wash my hair with Burt's Bees brand shampoo as I found out it's least toxic than other shampoos. I dont use conditioner that often ( 1nce a month) but I do put argan oil on wet hair after every wash.
My hair grows very slowly and I don;t dye it more than 3 times a year.

12.desire sweets, especially cakes and chocolate
13.I drink quite a lot of water so thirst is not my issue
14. my tongue looks generally pink and healthy although sometimes I have slightly white tongue but not at the tip of it. No particular taste in my mouth.
15.Sulphur 200c
16.I really explained everything in point no 10.
17. I feel lazy although in my mind I plan exciting day ahead, I rarely follow through. I worry a lot about the future, about money and about my family. I often feel hurt when close person to me addresses me in a negative way.
I feel I don't deserve a lot of things that happen to me, and at same time I can clearly see that I don't appreciate what I got. When someone is very kind to me, sometimes I catch myself being arrogant about it, taking it for granted. I spend money very easily,which casues my stress, and when I do spend it on something it is with a thouhght of feeling the need to improve myself by purchasing this item.
18.. I procrastinate a lot recently, I dont' do very much and it's hard for me to follow through plans and desires. I easily change my course.
I concentrate a lot on few days to come rather than bigger picture. To me future seems distant and yet I worry about it constantly. I attach myself emotionally quite easily, but then I always challenge the other side in emotional way.
When I am socialising I often think (I should do this more) but when I am at home, I can easily be on my own, and sometimes I wonder if it's perhaps too long. I wonder if I withdraw myself from contact with others.I don't have a lot of friendships.
I often engage myself emotionally in others people problems. I feel strong need to help, once I understand the issue.
I fall asleep way to quickly. I hit the pillow and within three minutes I am usually asleep.
It's hard for me to get up and I do not wake up in a dreamy mode, I usually get up cos I think I have something to do.
19.I feel slightly unhappy about the fact that I can't seem to overcome things that I am aware of. I put pressure on myself and I don't know how not to do it. At same time, I don't do much lately, so feel guilty about letting myself down.
20.I day dream a lot or I plan to dream things that I can do in real life but somehow I don't.
I worry.
21. My father's disease ( alcoholism)
22. Fear, stress, felt abandoned and unloved.
23. cold, very stiff body
24.habits: I sometimes pull skin on my fingers cuticules and carry on until area around the nail is red with damaged skin.
I pick the first layer of my skin on my lips and it's hard to stop. When my skin peels of during the summer, I feel a great sense of fulfillment when I am rippin it off.
Also I 'm puling faces as my mum calls it It. I am not aware of it and when I realise I feel embarrassed, cos it looks very unattractive, sort of a strenuous smile.
I try to control it but with little effect.
25.current Sulphur 200c
previous: Sulphur 30c,
gunpowder/silica/sulphur 6c,
Cantharsis 200c ( kidney infection)
26. Mother and father divorced after 29 years together.
Violent father who is an alcoholic. 2 younger sisters and 1 younger brother.Live in the city most of my life. Father's father is an alcoholic as well. Family is deeply affected by this issue and I no longer associate that often with members of the family that I feel stressed around.
Mother's mother was a diabetic.
Mother lived in poverty and father worked hard physically.
No specific diseases run in the closest family.
27.education is very minimal. college graduate.
28.I currently work as a waitress in a nightclub, working only 3-4 nights a week.
29.I usually like pretty healthy foods, but lately have cravings for bread and sugary products.
30.cakes, chocolate
31.anger, irritability, hurry,impatient, afraid of public speaking.
I seem to get angry very quickly and when a loved by me person says or does something that doensnt make me happy,I have difficulty staying calm. My first reaction is anger.
I usually feel guilt when I discover that there was no point of getting angry.
I want to be looked after and I feel like my loved ones cannot provide the love I desire. I want peace and harmony. Little issues make me stress a lot.
I am scared of very simple things sometimes that are ahead of me.
I sometimes feel like I wear a n Armour to face the reality.
I am very affectionate with close people to me. I like touching them and I really feel the need for a strong connection.
Random friendships do not interest me, in fact I disregard them probably too much.
32.Definitely feel a lot happier summertime. The sun is a great source of positiveness.
34. acne -Face, neck, chest and back.
oily hair - head
35.Face- chin, forehead, neck -near the ear, and two inches below, chest - upper area, back -the whole of the back
36.white puss or clear liquidy puss.

Thank you so much for your suggestion with the remedy. I do however have a small question.

Which one do you have in mind?
