Manage it: I'm going to assume this is acne and not folliculitis involving your beard. Don't ask "why". Acne is a chronic, non-hygiene-related, non-lifestyle-related disease that cannot be cured but can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a pimple in my armpit. It's red, tender & hurts when I touch it. I use birth control so idk if it's causing it & what should I do if it has pus?

Common: Pimple/abscess in armpit is common. Moisture, warmth & abundant hair follicles make the area more susceptible. U shd use Advil (ibuprofen) and keep the area clean and dry. Avoid using deodorants and do not cause further trauma by shaving etc. if pain increasing and infection spreading u may need antibiotics- see ur doc. Topical antibiotic like polysporin (OTC) may prevent spread. OCs do not cause this. ...Read more

Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed in two days. ...Read more
