I used to get quite a bit a few years back. If it's really bad then I suggest you go to a dermatologist. It costs a fair bit but it's so worth it. I took this acne treatment called 'roacutane'. Depends on how severe and if the dermatologist recommends it but it has worked wonders for me. I only get like one or two pimples during my period but the rest... nudda! (nothing lol). Since you're a guy, it could be even better for you. The stuff in roaccutane is Isotretenoin so you could talk to a doctor about isotretenoin if you want. Roaccutane cures the skin unlike other products which just helps prevent it then if you don't put the acne cream or whatever daily then they breakout again. When I took roaccutane I had to take 2 pills a day for a whole year.. then after that year.. didn't have to put anything on my face as it cleared. I just wash my face with a face wash now, and that's it. umm yea.. this worked for me. You can look it up for more details and speak to your local doc about it.. I highly recommend it, I hardly get pimples.. only on 'special occasions' ..that's all I can say.
