doctors are dumb i swear

yo i get like 2 pimples a week and they just turn into red spots for reasons unknown but i cant change that fact that they do right now so why not heal them faster. thats why when i go to the dermatologist i dont want a stupid retin-a or steviemacyin or any pills they dont do anything for a few pimples a week its rather pointless i swear im just figuring this out.

is there anything they can give you to help fade red marks. red marks = lamest thing EVER. SUCH A DUMB WAY OF HEALING I SWEAR. so sick of red marks my acne wouldnt be a problem if i didnt have these god damn red marks like jesus i have less acne then most ppl but my face looks like its actually worse.

Someone posted that Tamanu Oil is good for red marks and scars. Do the search feature on this website and type that in and it should come up.

If you don't pick or try to pop your pimples they will be less red and heal faster. If you use a drying agent like witch hazel it usually helps to speed up the process as well. Once the infection clears (big or small) try using moisturizers on your face and DO NOT PICK AT THE RED SPOTS. Even if you do everything right acne is kind of a process and it takes time. My suggestion (from experience) is witch hazel, moisturizer, and time. You just have to have patience.

Also, if you only have a few pimples now and then Retin A should work well as a spot treatment. But if you are using it I can't stress enough how important moisturizers are. How old are you anyway?

They just need time to heal. You can speed it up by using a regular healing agent like Neosporin or Polysporin overnight...Until then use a natural spot concealer. I am a guy and use a Loreal concealer every morning...I dont care one notices...I only use them on the few brown spots I have and it looks flawless
we're not scaremongering, this is really happening

Sometimes the irritation comes from your face rubbing against the pillow while you sleep. So I didnt have to pick to irritate. The pillow did it for me. I never could figure out how to avoid that problem.
