do blemishes go away eventually?

Hi I had a cystic pumple a month or two ago that was close to my mouth. It has left a red blemish behind and I am wondering if it will ever go away. Is there anything I can use to make the normal coloration return?

I am not an expert, but I hear that most of them do.

Whatever you do, just dont irrate it/damage it further by squeezing,picking, rubbing, using harsh topicals, ect. Leave it alone as best as you can, and put some 100 pcent aloe vera on it at night. Thats what ive found to work best for me.

i read somewhere once when you get the red or basically pigmented areas left behind by acne they take about a year to 100% go away.

The hyperpigmentation will go away but if you have an indent mark your stuck with that.
