Acne: It's not productive to try to guess why you haven't outgrown your acne yet. I was able to stop using medicine around age 50. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Best wishes.

Red pimples on face: Sounds like rosacea or seborrheic dermatitis or a combination of the two. See a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment suggestions.
