Pimples on face?

Acne

Head-face
don't wash your face with body soap. also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena or something with benzoyl peroxide. following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. you can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc.

How to cure pimples?

Scientific Rx

Acne
If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks and/or it's on your trunk, get with a mainstream scientific physician who can add prescription-strength meds such as topical clindamycin and/or a retinoic acid derivative, perhaps something stronger.

How to cure pimples????

Keep at bay

Pimples
While you're a male teen, all we can do is keep them controlled. For the long-term, often a systemic antibiotic is best for most men; your physician can make a recommendation. Over-the-counter drugs fail except for benzoyl peroxide; you may wish to add this. All acne can be controlled nowadays and it's your right. Good luck.

Why do pimples scar?

Acne Scars

Acne
Scarring occurs when there is damage to the deeper layers of the skin. In acne, scarring/dimpling can result from inflammation, cysts, & nodules deep in the skin, or as a result of trauma from squeezing lesions. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is when a dark or reddish flat spot remains after a pimple has cleared. Unlike true scars, PIH can fade with time (months) & sun protection.

Dr. Keith Ramsey answered:

Should I pop pimples?

The correct answer

Beauty_care
is no, but everyone does it. Sometimes popping them will cause them to burst under the skin and create a cyst-which can last for weeks or more. Blackheads can be removed with a comedone extractor, that you can purchase at a drug store. White heads, usually can be emptied without much pressure. Red or tender pimples should probably be left alone until they "come to a head."

how do i get pimples?

Part of puberty.

Pimples
Due to the changes in hormone levels, skin bacteria, and oil production, most people get pimples with puberty. Acne can continue until mid-20's to mid-30's, so whatever your doctor suggests to control it, keep using it on all acne-prone areas even when your skin is clear. No squeezing, scratching, picking or poking pimples; it not only can leave scars, but it can increase the pimples!

Dr. Jerome Litt answered:

How pimple can vanish?

PIMPLES TO VANISH

Desquam
If these are acne pimples, you should top eating nuts and peanut butter. Stop chocolate; cut down on dairy products. Wash with Neutrogena Acne Wash or Stridex Pads, and apply a BPO (benzoyl peroxide) cream or lotion -- something like Clearasil -- on the affected areas at night. If it persists, see a dermatologist who may prescribe an oral antibiotic for you.

how to remove pimples?

Acne

Acne
First, use a good moisturizing soap like Neutragena twice a day, everyday. Then, you can try benzoyl peroxide for just the pimples. You may need a prescription from your Dr for a topical solution such as Erythromycin 2% use after the face washes.
